Fellowship Application Procedure

The program in Cardiovascular Medicine maintains six fellowship positions each year. We are active participants in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) selection process. Some positions are allocated to individuals who wish to focus their investigative experience on Molecular and Cellular Cardiology and some to those with a focus on Pharmacologic, Physiologic, or Clinical Cardiology investigation. Please indicate your intended focus, prior investigative experience, and research areas that are of interest to you in the narrative statement. Please indicate, in your narrative, if you have any investigative affinity with particular faculty members. Please review the list of Cardiovascular Medicine Division faculty research activities.

Applications will undergo a preliminary review as they are completed beginning in January. Interview dates will be scheduled between March and May. The Stanford Cardiovascular Medicine Fellowship Program is committed to increasing representation of women and minority groups, and encourages applications from such candidates.

California law requires that all fellows hold a state license (or exemption from licensure for graduates of foreign medical schools outside Canada or U.S. Territories.) Those who do not have such a license must take an examination following commencement, or obtain licensure by reciprocity with National boards or another state within one year of initiating training.
