Structural heart disease is congenital or acquired pathologies outside of atherosclerosis. The growth of percutaneous therapies for the treatment of structural heart disease has led to the need to train high-quality physicians with expertise in these diseases and procedures. The Interventional Structural Heart Disease Fellowship at Brown is a 1 year, non-ACGME, program designed for fellows that desire further training in structural heart disease, non-coronary interventions, and high risk percutaneous coronary intervention. The experience includes clinical, diagnostic, and catheter-based therapy. To be eligible, fellows must complete an ACGME approved 1 year training program in Interventional Cardiology.
The program will provide multidisciplinary training in the evaluation and treatment of patients with:
