A key strength of the Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship at Orlando Health is the hands-on opportunities given to the fellows across multiple areas.  At the culmination of the fellowship, graduates reach procedural volumes that meet or exceed COCATS II in almost all specialties.  A typical general cardiology fellow will perform:

  • > 500 Left Heart Catheterizations
  • ­> 150 Right Heart Catheterizations­
  • > 300 Transesophageal Echocardiograms­
  • > 400 Transthoracic Echocardiograms­
  • > 250 Cardiac Computed Tomography Angiograms (CCTAs) and >150 calcium scores
  • ­> 150 Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRIs)
  • > 1000 Stress tests

Fellows have the opportunity to participate in electrophysiology (EP) procedures ranging from pacemaker insertions to EP studies, Watchman device placements, structural heart cases with our Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) and mitraclip teams, both from an interventional standpoint and a structural Echography standpoint, peripheral angiograms and peripheral interventions, STEMIS and percutaneous coronary interventions, loop recorder insertions, and tilt table testing.
