University fellowship program addresses shortage of minority cardiologists

In an effort to address the nation’s lack of minority cardiologist, the Morehouse School of Medicine announced the creation of a Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship Training Program.

As of 2010, only 3.16 percent of registered cardiologists identified as African American.

Recruitment for the first two cardiology fellows is already underway. Successful candidates will begin the three-year program at Grady Memorial Hospital and the Veteran Affairs Medical Center starting July 1, 2017. By summer 2019, the program will train up to six cardiology fellows annually at the Morehouse School of Medicine.
