Mission, Vision, & Aims
The Mission of the our program is to educate physicians in the broad field of cardiovascular disease which includes a major emphasis on research as well as clinical training.
Our 5-year Vision is that the Cardiology fellowship program will be one of the premiere locations for cardiovascular training with national recognition. We will accomplish this through the continued cultivation and expansion of our outstanding faculty, the delivery of care via our new cardiovascular bed tower, and the ever-increasing clinical reach of UF Health throughout the state, region, and country.
Additionally, we aim to be the premiere destination for early, mid, and late career trainees to learn the most current, state-of-the-art approaches to cardiovascular care.
