Innovation often comes as the product of education, and Carilion Clinic demonstrates our commitment by devoting extensive resources to teaching and research. We are now proud to offer two fellowships, one in cardiovascular disease and one in interventional cardiology. Fellows have the opportunity to develop core skills in modern and technologically advanced facilities, and then can tailor their training with elective rotations. In addition, fellows will have two months per year for research with mentors at Carilion, the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute, or at nearby Virginia Tech. This is part of our goal to meet the national need for more cardiologists.
