Apply & Contact
MMC supports three cardiology fellowship positions in each of the three years of training with additional funded research training available for appropriate fellows. Candidates must have successfully completed three years of training in internal medicine in an ACGME-approved residency program and be board-eligible in internal medicine. Candidate selection is based on the quality of previous training in Internal Medicine, evaluations by the Internal Medicine Program Director and other references, and the personal qualities of the candidate as evaluated during the interview process. We value emotional intelligence, diversity, effective communication skills, a strong work ethic, and teamwork.
Applications to the Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship Program at MMC are accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Fellowship positions are offered through the Medical Specialties Matching Program of the National Resident Matching Program.

Our Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion Mission Statement
The MMC Cardiovascular Medicine Fellowship is committed to fostering a collaborative, respectful and equitable environment where our learners, faculty, and teams can thrive in an ever-changing global community.
The program does not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender (identity), age, religion, language, ability/disability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, military status, geographic region, country of origin, or any other applicable protected status.
We are committed to recruiting diverse fellows, and faculty through the following:
- During recruitment season, the program director and faculty will be blinded to any ERAS filters that would allow candidates to be screened based on any of the aforementioned status. Pictures of candidates will be unavailable to reviewers during the screening of applicants.
- Prior to the interview season, the program director will emphasize the importance of a diverse training environment to both Fellows and Faculty. Faculty will be coached to avoid questions that could trigger implicit bias during the interview season.
- The Cardiology Fellowship program will advocate for the recruitment of diverse faculty by the Cardiac Service Line at MMC.
