Course Description

The prevalence of heart disease is increasing alarmingly in India. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in India, accounting for 1.7 million deaths annually. According to the global burden of disease report, nearly one-fourth of all deaths in India are related to cardiovascular diseases. Despite the rising burden of cardiovascular diseases in India, there is an acute shortage of trained cardiologists in the country. There are 4000 cardiologists in the country, while the requirement is 88,000. There is a need for physicians, who can serve to bridge this gap in the demand for cardiology services.

The ‘Fellowship in Clinical, Preventive & Non-Invasive Cardiology’ is a joint program created by Medanta Heart Institute and Medvarsity Online Ltd to develop a pool of skilled clinical and non-interventional cardiologists to address the increasing demand for cardiology services in India.  The student will receive 2-years of on-job training in clinical, preventive and non-invasive cardiology as part of this course. This will include clinical training of 6 months in cardiac ICU, 3 months in cardiac inpatient wards, and 3 months in cardiac OPDs. The student will also get 12 months of non-invasive cardiac diagnostics training including echocardiography, cardiac stress testing, nuclear imaging, and other imaging methods.
