Welcome to Allegheny General Hospital Interventional Cardiology Fellowship training program.

Our Interventional Cardiology Fellowship program started in 1999 and over the last 21 years has trained more than 60 interventional cardiologists who currently are leaders in their field and communities. Our fellowship program is diverse by all means. In addition to focusing on coronary interventions and high risk PCI, we have developed a comprehensive high volume structural heart disease program that includes, but not limited to, training in transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), percutaneous mitral valve interventions (Mitraclip and TMVR), left atrial appendage occluder, percutaneous closures of intracardiac defects and perivalvular leaks.
The Interventional Cardiology program also offers a comprehensive Endovascular peripheral vascular training along with a variety of catheter-based therapies for acute pulmonary embolism (various thrombolysis and thromboembolectomy devices).
Being a quaternary hospital and in conjunction with the heart failure and transplant team, our fellows are exposed and trained on a wide variety of percutaneous circulatory support devices (ECMO, IMPELLA, Tandem Heart).
The program offers rotations in our Allegheny Health Network (AHN) sister hospitals in the area in order to provide community hospital-based experience.Allegheny General Hospital is one of the leading hospitals in research, excellence and innovation.
