Advanced Heart Failure and Heart Transplant Physician Assistant Fellowship
Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences offers a one-year Advanced Heart Failure and Heart Transplant Physician Assistant Fellowship at Mayo Clinic’s campus in Phoenix, Arizona. Trainees start the fellowship year with their national certification and state licensure in place.
The fellowship training allows for inpatient and outpatient expertise. As a physician assistant (PA) fellow in this program, you experience high-quality clinical training in heart failure, transplant, and ventricular assist device (VAD) cardiology.
You learn from world-class faculty to gain experience in the four major components of heart failure evaluation, including:
– Etiology and contributing factors
– Hemodynamic status
– Appropriateness of therapy to relieve symptoms, prevent disease progression, and prevent unexpected mortality
– Thoughtful triage for surgical intervention or end-of-life care
Additionally, you are exposed to ongoing clinical investigation in heart failure and transplant and VAD medicine and are expected to participate in new clinical projects with anticipated authorship.
