About the University of Arizona Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship Program

“As a resident here, I felt the cardiology faculty was world renowned, yet they were committed to educating fellows and residents. As a general cardiology fellow, who didn’t yet know which subspecialty I would pursue, it was important to have access to the full scope of interventional, EP, heart failure, transplant and world-class imaging. I’ve learned as much from my co-fellows as I have from the faculty, and leadership is very open to feedback. Plus, I fell in love with Tucson, the community, food, weather, outdoors, hiking. The scenery is very relaxing and helps you unwind at the end of the day.”
