Date:12/12/2012

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Following a successful inaugural year, the Fogarty Institute for Innovation announced today that it is accepting applications for its Advanced Endovascular Training Fellowship.  This unique clinical training program, which will begin on July 8, 2013, provides Fellows with broad exposure to all aspects of endovascular patient care, with an emphasis on interventional training. Fellows will also have the opportunity to engage with the Fogarty Institute's early-stage medical device start-up companies and assist in the process of developing technologies to improve patient care.

"The Fellowship provides physicians with an unparalleled and holistic educational and clinical training experience," said James Joye, D.O., director of the fellowship program and chief medical officer of the Fogarty Institute. "Not only are they working side-by-side with experts in endovascular specialty areas, but they are providing clinical feedback to early stage technology innovation in the Fogarty Institute and learning about the business and systems of a community hospital with El Camino Hospital senior leadership."

In addition to providing a salary and benefits to support the Fellows' education and training, the Fogarty Institute will match each Fellow with clinical advisors from different clinical disciplines, as well as an innovation and entrepreneurship advisor from the Fogarty Institute. During the fellowship, each Fellow will be encouraged to conduct research in their area of interest and author publications based on their findings.

Criteria for the fellowship include board-certified or board-eligible training in interventional cardiology, interventional radiology, vascular surgery or cardiovascular surgery.  A California Physicians License will be required only for those selected into the program. Interested physicians may apply online by Friday, February 15, 2013, at www.fogartyinstitute.org/fellowship.html. Those selected will be notified by the end of February.

For fellowship inquiries, contact the Fogarty Institute for Innovation at (650) 962-4560 or Fellowships@FogartyInstitute.org.

The program is made possible through generous support of the Heart & Vascular Institute of El Camino Hospital and VIVA Physicians.
