Fellowship in Cardiovascular Diseases

Program Director
Thierry H. Le Jemtel, MD



The Tulane University School of Medicine Cardiology Fellowship is a three-year program. The goals of the training program are to train fellows in the practice of clinical cardiology, and to teach the knowledge, skills, clinical judgment, attitudes, and values that are essential to the practice of cardiology. We strive to foster humanistic and ethical attributes in our trainees and we encourage an appropriate balance between academic endeavors and clinical service.

Tulane cardiology fellows rotate at Tulane University Hospital and Clinic in New Orleans, Veterans Affairs Medical Center in New Orleans, and Medical Center of Louisiana at New Orleans - University Hospital campus. Clinical rotations include cardiac catheterization, non-invasive imaging, electrophysiology, cardiology consults, CCU, and congestive heart failure/heart transplant. The amount of time spent at each institution is determined by the particular needs of the individual and the desire to provide a balanced training experience. In addition, we strongly encourage fellows to participate in basic or clinical cardiovascular research.  During the program, the trainee will move from participation in procedures under very close supervision to independent activity.

The Office of Graduate Medical Education (GME) is responsible for ensuring that all residents and fellows at Tulane University School of Medicine are provided an accredited, educational experience of the highest quality.
