Position: Advanced Fellowship in Endovascular Therapy
(June 1, 2020-July 30, 2021)
Yale New Haven Hospital and the Section of Cardiovascular Medicine is seeking outstanding applicants for sub-specialty fellowship training in peripheral vascular medicine and advanced endovascular intervention.
Yale New Haven Hospital & Yale University have fostered a truly unique training program in peripheral vascular medicine and interventions. Fellows train in an extremely large volume of a wide variety of complex endovascular interventions including but not limited to lower extremity (including complex below the knee), carotid, subclavian, pulmonary artery as well as superficial and deep venous cases in addition to outpatient care. There is additional structured didactic and practical training in vascular medicine and imaging which allows for RPVI board eligibility.
Our graduates have obtained positions at academic medical centers as well as directing high volume community based endovascular intervention programs. With academic mentorship, all fellows generally publish one peer-reviewed manuscript and present at least one national meeting per year.
We currently offer two different pathways:
Clinical pathway is a one year training program. The vascular medicine and endovascular intervention training program at Yale New Haven Hospital is one of the busiest programs in the country, and we care for thousands of patients with peripheral arterial disease each year. We are among the highest volume centers for critical limb ischemia and carotid artery disease. Our fellows receive comprehensive training in the medical and interventional management of these patients within both the procedural and outpatient settings. The clinical pathway focuses on patient care and interventions in the catheterization laboratory, but we expect all fellows to pursue an academic interest within the field. Typically, at least nine months will be dedicated to clinical responsibilities and up to three months will be reserved for research and/or imaging training through which fellows have typically written one peer-reviewed manuscript and presented at least one national meeting.
Research pathway is an additional one year after the clinical pathway is completed making it a two year pathway. This pathway is available through a NIH funded T32 training grant focused on providing training in multi-modality molecular and translational cardiovascular research and imaging guided interventions. Highly qualified fellows with either an MD and/or PhD who aspire to have academic careers as independent investigators within the field of cardiovascular disease are encouraged to apply.
There are four primary research focuses in the post-doctoral training: • Cardiovascular molecular imaging • Cardiovascular imaging technologies and analyses • Imaging guided interventions • Translational cardiovascular research
Applicants will have full access to unique resources available through Y-TRIC (Yale Translational Research Imaging Center), including small and large animal surgical suites, digital fluoroscopic interventional suite with conebeam CT capability, 3D ultrasound, intracardiac ultrasound, hybrid SPECT/64-slice CT, microSPECT/CT, microCT, and a dedicated lower extremity high-resolution high-sensitivity SPECT imaging system, as well as other institutional resources such as PET/CT and MRI.
Participation will be aimed at ongoing NIH funded projects directed at development, validation and application of imaging guided assessment of cardiovascular pathophysiology and interventions. These include targeted molecular assessment of myocardial ischemic injury, angiogenesis, arteriogenesis, post–infarction atrial and ventricular remodeling, and peripheral artery disease. This translational research employs multi-modality 3–D imaging in both patients and a wide range of small and large animal models including models of ischemic heart disease, chemotherapy-induced cardiotoxicity, pressure overload, peripheral arterial disease, and heart failure.
Fellows with particular areas of clinical or academic interest in cardiovascular medicine are encouraged to reach out to us to develop a uniquely designed training program that meet their academic and clinical goals.
