The ACGME accredited Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Fellowship Program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is a one-year training program for candidates who have completed three years in an ACGME accredited cardiovascular disease program.
The Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Fellowship Program at the University of Wisconsin- Madison is unique in that trainees will find themselves working through an integrative program over 12 months which will include training in both heart failure and cardiac transplantation. Trainees will learn to manage heart failure patients using a number of established and experimental treatment options. Trainees will also gain experience in the selection and management of implantable devices and be exposed to the transplant process, including donor selection and immunology care. Trainees are also required to participate in clinical research or pursue an original project, which may be carried out over their one year as a fellow or over an additional 6-12 months, pending sufficient funding.
