Welcome

Vijaykumar S. Kasi, MD

The interventional cardiology fellowship at Orlando Health is a one-year program designed to prepare the trainee for a career in clinical as well as academic interventional cardiology. The program is ACGME accredited and fulfills all ACGME mandated requirements for training.

The fellowship is entirely based at Orlando Health Orlando Regional Medical Center (OHORMC) located on the downtown campus, the primary teaching hospital for Orlando Health. This 808-bed hospital in downtown Orlando is the flagship medical center of the Orlando Health system. For more than 100 years, Orlando Health ORMC has provided the most advanced options available for surgical, medical, rehabilitative and emergency care in Central Florida.

Orlando Health ORMC is a state-of-the-art facility that provides an ideal environment for interventional training. The center houses seven modern and fully equipped cardiac catheterization laboratories (two of these are state of the art hybrid suites with open heart capabilities and a third hybrid suite is currently under construction). The annual volume for interventional cardiology services is approximately 1000 coronary interventions, over 300 vascular procedures and over 300 structural heart cases.

Although the ACGME accredited fellowship is geared towards providing an exceptional coronary training, all fellows get good exposure to structural and peripheral vascular interventions. Since we choose to accept only one interventional fellow each year, the training opportunities abound without competition for cases amongst trainees.

Sincerely,
