Clinical training, didactic teaching, research experience
Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s (VUMC) Division of Cardiovascular Medicine offers a one-year clinical Cardio-Oncology Certificate Program to highly motivated individuals. The program includes clinical training, didactic teaching and research experience. The primary goal of the training program is to prepare trainees to become outstanding academic physicians and future leaders in cardio-oncology through research, education and clinical activities.
The Cardio-Oncology Program is a Graduate Medical Education-approved Certificate Program that provides a structured curriculum, including weekly didactic sessions, clinical rotations and cardio-oncology-based research experience. Fellows rotate through the outpatient cardio-oncology and amyloid clinics, as well as dedicated oncology clinics, which expose them to the various aspects of oncology and oncology care. These dedicated oncology clinics will include breast cancer, prostate cancer, melanoma, leukemia/lymphoma, transplant, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, and radiation oncology clinics, as well as the early drug development and survivorship oncology clinical programs.
This broad clinical experience is made possible by an integrated cardiovascular center and access to world-class academic faculty in oncology and cardiology. Close collaboration with various departments at VUMC allows for integration with other aspects of the cardiovascular division, including heart failure, vascular medicine, cardiac imaging, arrhythmia, autonomic dysfunction and genetics programs.
