Interventional Cardiology Fellowship Program

One fellow is accepted into our program to train for one year.

The Interventional Cardiology Fellowship Program is a one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship for trainees who have completed a three-year accredited training program in Cardiovascular Disease and are eligible to sit for the ABIM certification exams in Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular Disease. This one-year program is intended to prepare trainees for a career in Interventional Cardiology with expertise in treating routine and complex coronary and peripheral vascular disease, along with a strong foundation in the evaluation and management of structural heart disease.

By the conclusion of this fellowship, trainees will be expected to sit for the ABIM certification exam in Interventional Cardiology.


The clinical base for this fellowship is at the University Medical Center and
affiliated clinics and Slidell Memorial Hospital

In addition to the procedures performed at the hospitals, trainees will attend the Interventional Cardiology clinic at UMCNO one half-day per week under the supervision of faculty members of the Section of Cardiology.


In keeping with ACGME requirements, trainees are expected to be involved in
scholarly activity during the course of their fellowship. Evidence of scholarly
productivity is required for completion of the training program.


Murtuza Ali, MD serves as program director for the Interventional Cardiology Fellowship Program. In addition, trainees will work with Pramilla Subramaniam, MDPedro Cox-Alomar, MD, and Scott Laura, MD


Trainees are expected to attend and participate in bi-monthly Interventional Cardiology Conferences and Interventional Journal Clubs, as well as weekly General/Interventional Cardiology conferences (including but not limited to Case Conferences, Research Conferences, Grand Rounds, and Hemodynamics Conferences).
