Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship

About the Fellowship

The Texas Heart Institute Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship at Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center was started in 1965 under the guidance of Dr. Robert Leachman. The fellowship has a rich history of stalwart clinician-educators, such as Dr. Leachman, Dr. Robert Hall, Texas Heart Institute president emeritus Dr. James T. Willerson, and many others, who take tremendous pride in training our fellows. Over the decades, the Texas Heart Institute (THI) cardiology fellowship program has made a name for itself by consistently training outstanding cardiologists who are highly regarded for their clinical skill throughout the cardiology community.

A history of excellence since 1965

Our 3-year ACGME certified general cardiology fellowship is open to six fellows per year. We also offer advanced subspecialty fellowships in interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, advanced heart failure, and CT/MRI. After successful completion of the THI general cardiology fellowship program, our fellows are given first preference to subspecialty fellowship positions available at our institution.
