Division of Cardiovascular Medicine
The Cardiology Fellowship program at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso was accredited in 2011 and recruited our first two fellows in 2012. The goal is to train and retain physicians to practice in the surrounding, under-served U.S. Mexican border area.
The Division of Cardiology currently has a total of 6-cardiology fellows recruited from the top medical schools in the Country. The program aims to produce clinical cardiologists trained to care for patients with skills and compassion to serve as consultants and colleagues with other health care providers. They are trained to be excellent clinical cardiologists, with focus on exposure to invasive, non-invasive, evidence based medicine, and quality improvement initiatives. We have outstanding clinical and research training in Cardiovascular Disease
Our fellows are expected to pass Nuclear and Echo Boards in addition to the essential ABIM Cardiology Boards.
Our primary training site provides excellent clinical experience in the Cardiovascular ICU, Consult service, Cardiac catheterization Laboratories, and in the Noninvasive (EKG, ECHO, and STRESS) laboratory.
Fellow’s rotation at one of our affiliated facilities in advanced stereotactic Electrophysiology laboratory has produced an excellent experience.
We have developed an excellent partnership with the cardiac surgery group at our primary teaching site and has produced an increase in both volume, and quality outcomes of surgical cases.
