The Cardiology Fellowship at Garden City Hospital offers an intensive,
community-based program emphasizing general clinical, invasive, and noninvasive
cardiology. This three-year program uses a highly integrative approach
to diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disorders. Bedside teaching,
as well as performance, interpretation and application of all diagnostic
modalities are incorporated into a holistic approach to patient care.
There are ample opportunities for elective rotations, both on and off
campus, during the second and third years. Weekky academic sessions follow
the American College of Cardiology self-assessment program series. Teaching
is active at all levels.
