Over 21 ACGME programs in the Tristate Area
Largest Fellows society in the country


  • To foster a community among cardiology fellows in the tristate area
  • To offer a forum to address educational and clinical issues specifically targeted to cardiology fellows
  • To provide opportunities for public speaking through advocacy and community service and outreach
  • To involve young physicians early on in their careers with the American Heart Association


Several programs are held throughout the year that provide an opportunity for Cardiology fellows from around the region to come together, network, and learn from each other. In bringing everyone together, we seek to capitalize on the rich Cardiology community that exists in the greater New York area to take advantage of the expertise, mentorship, and learning opportunities that exist.
