About the Program
Cardiology is a complex and wide ranging field.  The field of interventional cardiology has vastly expanded over the past several years and there is increasing recognition that this branch of cardiology is becoming more complex and specialized.  The knowledge base and the technical skills required for excellence in interventional cardiology mandate that this field be given a devoted year of training. The American Board of Internal Medicine began to recognize this field in 1999 with the first board examination in Interventional Cardiology. For current trainees, the requirement to sit for the board examination is completion of a fourth year of fellowship specifically dealing with interventional techniques.  The fourth year Interventional Cardiology Fellowship program at the Medical University of South Carolina operates as an integral part of the Cardiology Fellowship program. They must be eligible to sit for the Cardiovascular Disease board examination.
