General Cardiology

Each summer, the UCSF Division of Cardiology welcomes a cohort of new fellows who are attracted by UCSF’s outstanding faculty, the Division’s excellent education and research programs, and the opportunity to care for a diverse group of patients at UCSF Medical Center, San Francisco General Hospital and the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Competition for the fellowship positions is intense: this year, we received 362 applications and selected just six fellows. These fellows are some of the brightest and most promising physicians in the country. They are excited about pursuing careers in academic medicine, and are committed to excellence in patient care, research and teaching.

About the Program

The adult Cardiology Fellowship Training Program of the University of California, San Francisco is fully integrated among its three core hospitals: Moffitt/Long Hospital, Veterans Affairs Hospital, and San Francisco General Hospital. UCSF participates in the Subspecialty Fellows Matching Program. The program consists of 24 months of clinical training. The sequence of training will be 2 clinical years followed by a minimum of one or more years of research training. The research years are funded by various research fellowships (i.e., NIH training grants, the NIH-funded Program of Excellence in Molecular Biology of the Cardiovascular Research Institute, individual NIH Fellowships, Heart Association Fellowships, Pharmaceutical Fellowships, etc.). This funding is obtained by selecting a preceptor and project and submitting the appropriate proposals. Clinical training is funded by Hospital/Departmental resources. Fellows in good standing are guaranteed 4 years of funding.

The current stipend for Cardiology Fellows in the clinical portion of their training is approximately $65,211.00 for the first year and $66,676.00 for the second year. There is an additional housing allowance of $11,000 this academic year.
