Postdoctoral Programs: Cardiology

Osteopathic Medicine in Downers Grove

The Cardiology Fellowship Training Program of the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine is a 36-month, AOA-approved training program leading to board certification in the subspecialty of cardiology by the AOBIM.

The general objectives of the training program are to engender continuous participation in a program of self-evaluation and self-improvement for trainees, provide the trainee with diverse didactic and clinical experiences in all aspects of acute and chronic cardiovascular diagnosis and therapy, and provide the trainee with the knowledge and experience basis for development of the ability to elicit, organize and record data, order, utilize, interpret and (in some cases) perform diagnostic procedures and tests; initiate appropriate therapy with due regard for the risks versus the benefits, and follow and manage patients with all forms of cardiovascular disease.


The Section of Cardiology and the Department of Internal Medicine educates osteopathic cardiology fellows to provide the highest quality compassionate care; promotes the practice of osteopathic cardiology; and encourages lifelong learning, research, and service.
