Piedmont Heart Physician Assistant/Nurse Practitioner Fellowship in Advanced Cardiology 

This program is designed to educate physician assistants in evaluating and managing critically ill patients requiring advanced cardiac therapies through a multidisciplinary team approach.

Residents participate in the admission and consultation of cardiac patients to the intensive care units. Residents rotate through cardiac subspecialties such as general and interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, advanced heart failure and cardiothoracic surgery. Residents acquire skills necessary to contribute to the management of advanced cardiac disease pathophysiologies, such as cardiogenic shock, advanced coronary disease, cardiac arrhythmias and valvular heart disease.

Residents work with experts in advanced imaging techniques such as echocardiography, and cardiac MR/CT. There are ongoing opportunities to obtain Category I CME throughout the year.
