Preventive Cardiology & Women’s Heart Wellness

During the first year of fellowship, all fellows spend one month in the Preventive Cardiology and Athlete’s Heart Clinic at Hartford Hospital. During this rotation, fellows will learn from world leaders in lipid management and care of athletes with various cardiovascular diseases. Much of the time during this rotation is spent seeing patients in clinic alongside a cardiology attending. Fellows will also spend time during this rotation experiencing Hartford Hospital’s LDL apheresis unit and cardiac rehabilitation program. This is a unique rotation that exposes fellows to advanced care of issues that are relevant across the spectrum of general cardiology and its subspecialties. Our Women’s Heart Wellness Program represents Hartford HealthCare’s dedication to identifying, treating and, whenever possible, preventing cardiovascular disease in women.
