Cardiology Fellowship Programs

The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) trains future physicians in cardiovascular diseases to be physician-leaders dedicated to the lifelong pursuit of excellent clinical care and scientific discovery.

Our Cardiology Fellowship Training Programs combine state-of-the-art clinical and research training in an exceptional educational environment consisting of diverse training hospitals: MUSC’s Ashley River Tower and the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center.

Our ACMGE-accredited fellowship program is a three year program, with the option of additional year(s) of training in clinical cardiology or cardiovascular research. The program consists of two years of clinical training and one year of dedicated time for research and scholarly activities. Seven fellows are accepted each year, and in order to be eligible, applicants must have completed an approved internal medicine residency program.

In addition to our general cardiology fellowship program, we offer advanced subspecialty fellowship training in interventional, electrophysiology, advanced heart failure and transplant, and adult congenital heart disease.

Division faculty members provide extensive teaching services and hold leadership positions across the MUSC campus. The Chief of the Division of Cardiology, as well as the Heart & Vascular Integrated Center of Clinical Excellence (ICCE) is Thomas G. Di Salvo, M.D., MBA. There are more than 30 clinical faculty and approximately 10 research faculty with primary appointments in Cardiology, with several who work on both clinical and research priorities in cardiovascular diseases.
