Goals & Objectives

Goals

The goals of the UF College of Medicine – Jacksonville cardiovascular disease fellowship program are:

  • To train internal medicine board-eligible or board-certified internists in the evaluation and management of a wide variety of acute and chronic cardiovascular conditions, as proscribed by the ACGME program requirements for residency education in cardiovascular disease and the American Board of Internal Medicine. This will be accomplished through a combination of supervised clinical and procedural experiences, classroom lectures, interactive conferences, supervised fellow presentations, guided readings, computer-based learning tools, interaction with other health care providers and regional and national meeting attendance.
  • To foster and guide the development of young physicians to become highly competent and ethical practitioners of cardiovascular medicine; efficient managers of health care resources; conscientious and enthusiastic leaders in their hospital, community and society; effective communicators and educators of their patients, trainees and colleagues; capable students who continue to grow and learn throughout their careers; and proficient medical scientists who contribute substantive information to global medical knowledge.

Objectives

The objective of this fellowship is to produce graduates who join the ranks of clinician-scholars and physician-scientists in university programs, teaching hospitals and clinics, research organizations, governmental agencies and other scholarly institutions and leadership bodies both nationally and internationally.
