Thank you for your interest in the University of Michigan Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship Program. Our goal is to help fellows develop to the fullest of their potential in a stimulating and supportive program. The University of Michigan, from the days of opening the first University Hospital in 1850, has a longstanding tradition of excellence in training leaders in cardiovascular disease. We have a diverse and internationally recognized faculty practicing in a state of the art facility at one of the greatest public universities in the world.
While we have a great tradition, faculty, facility and university, the greatest asset of all is our fellows. We are fortunate to recruit some of the brightest young talent in medicine. Additional strengths of our program include outstanding clinical training in all disciplines, a state of the art VA hospital staffed by UM faculty, a broad range of basic and clinical research opportunities, and leadership committed to trainee development and mentorship. Our clinical services are busy and growing, and fellows care for patients with a broad range of cardiovascular diseases. We believe first and foremost in producing well-trained clinical cardiologists. We believe in the critical role of a strong culture in the optimal performance of our program and in empowering our fellows to drive the culture.
Ann Arbor is a fabulous place to call home, and is frequently ranked among the best places to live in the US. Our current fellows are outstanding individuals and I am extremely fortunate and proud to work with such a fine group of people. I am confident that you will find Ann Arbor a great place to live and train, and we will do our best to help you reach your goals. I appreciate your interest in our program, and we look forward to meeting you.
Peter Hagan, M.B.
