Scholarly Activity

One of our program’s outstanding features is the opportunity for our fellows and faculty to pursue research activities which result in published case reports and articles in nationally and internationally acclaimed journals.  In addition, our fellows and faculty participate in groundbreaking clinical research projects.  Interdisciplinary research projects enhance our fellows’ research experience.  Ample time is afforded our fellows to identify and research their chosen project(s). Our fellows and faculty routinely participate in the annual Research Day at St. Joseph’s University Medical Center.  Fellows and faculty alike present at the regional, national, and international levels. Fellows attend and have presented annually at the American College of Cardiology Scientific Session, the annual American Heart Association Scientific Session, and the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Intervention.

A sampling of our program’s most-recent scholarly activities follows below:
