Advanced Heart Failure Fellowship
The Advanced Heart Failure Fellowship offers advanced training in the evaluation and multiple management strategies for patients with advanced heart failure. This senior fellow will participate in in-patient and out-patient management of a wide spectrum of patients with advanced heart failure from initial diagnosis to consideration of high-risk cardiac surgery, cardiac transplantation, mechanical circulatory support, and end-of-life care.
It will also focus on co-management of post-operative cardiac transplant and mechanical support device patients. Additional time is devoted to continuity clinic experiences, including regular participation in the Cardiac Function Clinic, outpatient Cardiac Transplant Clinic, Endomyocardial Biopsy Surveillance post cardiac transplant, and ambulatory VAD Clinic.
All fellows will participate actively in the multiple ongoing research projects and will undertake at least one independent research project for presentation and publication.
The Libin Cardiovascular Institute of Alberta's research program encompasses all aspects of cardiovascular physiology and disease including biophysics, pharmacology and molecular biology of cardiac cells and their role in arrhythmias and syncope, integrative physiology of the heart and cardiovascular system and mechanics, and excitation-contraction coupling of cardiac muscle in cardiac hypertrophy and congestive heart failure.
The Libin Institute also focuses on clinical studies of cardiovascular diseases, clinical trials and mechanistic studies of cardiovascular diseases, as well as knowledge translation. This is an excellent opportunity to develop advanced clinical and/or investigative skills in a rich environment with potential collaboration with a productive group of clinical and basic researchers.
