Cardiovascular Disease Application and Interview Process

Candidates who would like to be considered for one of two positions in the Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship program (6 CVD fellows altogether) need to submit an application via the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).

Interviews are by invitation only and are generally offered to applicants with a combination of solid medical school performance, above average USMLE scores, and recent clinical experience in U.S. hospitals in which the student or physician had meaningful responsibility for patient management decisions. In addition, three letters of recommendation are preferred.
