THI Fellowships

Culture of Excellence

“Our institution-based fellowship program encourages the culture of a single institution and fosters collegiality among staff cardiologists, fellowship peers, nurses, and other support staff.” – Stephanie Coulter, MD Fellowship Program Director

Over the past 50 years, the THI Fellowship program has evolved and grown organically to meet the needs of our trainees while pro- viding vital support to our clinical affiliate hospital. The fellows are deployed in a learning strategy that promotes excellence while improv- ing patient length of stay and quali- ty metrics at our hospital partner.

The structured curriculum has become the backbone of the cardiac unit at the Texas Heart Institute and promotes comradery between the fellows, faculty, and clinical staff. The Noon Conferences and institution-wide Cardiology Grand Rounds feature local, regional, and national leaders in their fields from around the country to enhance the academic experience.

The program structure benefits the learning environment, as faculty, fellows, and staff have the opportunity to jointly attend numerous educational lectures, case conferences, subspecialty conferences including cardiac catheterization, echocardiography, electrophysiology, heart failure, and STEMI conferences, journal clubs, quality/metrics sessions, and morbidity and mortality discussions.
