Apply & Contact

We support two fellowship positions in each of the three years of training. Candidates must have successfully completed three years of training in Internal Medicine in an approved allopathic or osteopathic training program and be board eligible in internal medicine.

Candidate selection is based on the quality of previous training in internal medicine, evaluations of competence by the Internal Medicine Program Director and other references, and personal qualities of the candidates as evaluated during the interview process. Effective communication skills, including the ability to work with and relate effectively to others, are extremely important.

Applications to the Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship Program at MMC are accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Fellowship positions are offered through the Medical Specialties Matching Program of the National Resident Matching Program. ERAS is now accepting applications for the 2016 cardiovascular fellowship program (Program begins July 2016).


  • Letter from Residency Program Director
  • Two additional letters of reference from attending physicians you have worked with at a U.S. teaching hospital during your residency
  • We accept applications from U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and those training on J-1 visas.
  • We do not sponsor H1B visas


Interviews are by invitation only. We evaluate each application prior to extending an invitation to interview. A formal interview is required to be considered for our program. The committee will not review incomplete applications. Potential interviewees will be notified by telephone or e-mail.
