Fellowship in Interventional Cardiology
Anand M. Irimpen, MD
The Tulane University School of Medicine Interventional Cardiology Fellowship is a one-year program. The goals of the Tulane University Interventional Cardiology Fellowship training program is to train Interventional Cardiology fellows in the practice of Interventional Cardiology, and to teach the knowledge, skills, clinical judgment, attitudes and values that are essential to the practice of Interventional Cardiology. We strive to foster humanistic and ethical attributes in our trainees and encourage an appropriate balance between academic endeavors and clinical service.
The training includes didactic conferences, weekly case conferences, and individual fellow and faculty clinical patient reviews (pre- and post-procedure) to discuss risks, benefits, results, treatment strategies and complications. Trainees also assist in teaching cardiology fellows, medicine residents and other student groups. Interventional cardiology fellows also will lead case discussions at cath conferences.
The emphasis of the program is to give fellows ample opportunities to learn appropriate technical skills for safe coronary and peripheral intervention using multiple devices including rotational atherectomy, balloons, stents, filter devices, and to advance and to refine diagnostic catheterization skills. Ample coronary procedures are available to meet required procedure volumes.
Tulane Interventional Cardiology fellows rotate at Tulane University Hospital and Clinic in New Orleans, and at the Medical Center of Louisiana at New Orleans - University Hospital campus. An equal amount of time is spent at each institution. Trainees are strongly encouraged 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.
Applications for the 2014-2015 academic year will be accepted through ERAS from April 1, 2013 to July 31, 2013. Select applicants will be invited to interview in the month of September.
