The Division of Cardiovascular Diseases at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center has a tripartite mission: to mentor, to discover, and to serve. Inpatient and outpatient activities are provided at three sites: Regional One Health (ROH); the Veterans Administration Medical Center (VAMC); and the UT Methodist Hospital (UTMH). Accordingly, trainees interact with diverse patient populations. Each health care site has an Emergency Room, Coronary Care and Telemetry Units, inpatient and outpatient services, and noninvasive and invasive laboratories.
The Division is dedicated to training individuals who have completed their residency in internal medicine at an accredited program. Fellowship program objectives: to train competent, confident, and compassionate clinical cardiologists who will embrace and incorporate the practice of cardiovascular medicine in the context of its underlying pathophysiologic basis. In so doing, trainees will come to use a maturity in judgment that will enable them to individualize management strategies for each of their patients and to place in perspective the results of outcomes-based large clinical trials.
Currently the Division is made up of 19 physicians. Our physicians are subspecialized in cardiac electrophysiology, interventional cardiology, diagnostic cardiovascular imaging, advanced heart failure and heart transplantation. Faculty members mentor medical students, resident physicians, and subspecialty fellows in clinical training, education and research.
Thank you for your interest in the UTHSC Division of Cardiology.
