The Charleston Area Medical Center (CAMC) Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship provides a unique, contemporary training experience in a high volume clinical environment supported by talented and highly specialized faculty. 

Comprehensive Clinical Training 

The CAMC Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship is housed in a 960 bed quaternary care hospital center that is nestled between the mountains alongside a river in the state capital of West Virginia. The institution has a rich history of graduate medical education, including becoming the first university-affiliated (West Virginia University) hospital system within the United States in the 1970s.

The institution has a legacy of providing innovative cardiovascular care and is currently one of the highest volume interventional programs within the United States. The strong coronary interventional, structural heart and vascular programs have gained national recognition. 

Recently, we have recruited faculty with advanced cardiac imaging training in cardiovascular computed tomography, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, structural heart disease, and 3-D echocardiography.  

On any given day, you will find as many as 800 learners doing research or caring for patients within the CAMC health care system, including a regional medical school campus with 179 medical students from West Virginia University and West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine. 

Research Opportunities 

CAMC has dedicated significant resources to align the advanced imaging and heart failure programs with our interventional centers of excellence as we embark on a new strategic focus of teaching and research. The program has a very active cardiovascular simulation program and is in the process of building a standalone simulation center.

Our Culture 

Our program strives to be inclusive and maintain a culture that values compassion, collegiality and integrity.  

Salary and Benefits 

CAMC offers a comprehensive salary and benefit package for residents and fellows.
