Research training opportunities for residents and fellows

We are currently conducting prospective and retrospective studies in the use of multi-modality cardiac imaging in the management of patients with cardiovascular disease.   Fellows, residents, interns, medical students, and college students actively participate in all aspects of research from data collection/management to abstract and manuscript preparation.  All members of the research team contribute significantly and have the opportunity to present their work at local, national, and even international conferences.
