Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Fellowship
NYU Langone’s Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) Program offers one advanced fellowship position beginning July 2024 for a qualified physician interested in an academic and clinical career in the diagnosis, evaluation, and longitudinal treatment of patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and their families.
Physicians at NYU Langone’s HCM Program have been active for 25 years, consulting on more than 2,500 patients. It is the largest full-service HCM Program in the mid-Atlantic states.
Fellowship Clinical Training
Clinical training encompasses diagnosis, imaging, treatment planning, and clinical judgments. Trainees participate in a broad range of clinical experiences in the most advanced modern medical facilities and play an integral role in cutting-edge research projects.
Fellows learn how to provide outpatient and inpatient consultations for patients with HCM utilizing state-of-the-art imaging modalities such as resting and stress echocardiograms and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, as well as invasive hemodynamic assessments. Fellows will interpret echocardiograms under the supervision of experienced cardiac echocardiographers. There is also an emphasis on family screening and genotype analysis.
The fellowship offers extensive exposure to HCM-specific pharmacologic therapy, established and novel, indications for myectomy, and preoperative, intra-operative, and postoperative care of patients in our large volume surgical program. Trainees also conduct evaluation for alcohol ablation and procedure monitoring, indications for electrophysiologic device therapy, and advanced heart rhythm interventions.
The benefits and risks of offered therapies are analyzed, and communication skills honed.
Trainees have ample opportunity to participate in investigator-initiated trials and play an integral role in recruitment for drug trials.
Our trainees have extensive interaction with clinical cardiology fellows in context of consultations, which provides valuable teaching opportunities.
