Thank you for your interest in our cardiovascular disease fellowship program here at Inova. Our Heart and Vascular Institute has grown dramatically over the last decade from all perspectives – patient care, research, and medical education.

Fellows training here have the opportunity to care for a diverse patient population with high acuity and complexity, under the mentorship of dynamic nationally recognized faculty. Graduates have excellent clinical and research skills, preparing them for a wide variety of career paths. We look forward to sharing our program with you!

Thank you,

Academic Activity at Inova

Academic activity is also a high priority for the IHVI faculty with 320 peer-reviewed publications in 2021 along with presentations and invited talks at nearly every major cardiovascular meeting.

As a new and rapidly ascending program committed to clinical and academic excellence we hope to train cardiovascular disease fellows with the same mindset.
