New Fellowship At St. Vincent Will Combat Chronic Heart Problems
It's a tool that will help combat a big problem now, that medical professionals think will only get worse.
Advanced Heart Failure is expected to hit America as our baby-boomer generation ages past 60. But St.Vincent has earned a fellowship that could put the hospital at the forefront of medicine that combats issues like congestive heart failure.
The fellowship adds another year to resident physician training, which allows that young doctor to move from medical student to independent, specialty practitioner.
Dr. Mary Norine Walsh, is the program director of the Advanced Heart Failure and Transplantation Cardiology Fellowship. She says The new fellowship program adds to the array of medical education options at St.Vincent, and keeps it nationally competitive with other leading hospitals.
