Welcome to Our Interventional Cardiology Fellowship - McLaren Flint Program

  • A Message from the Program Director
    Hameem Changezi MD FACC FSCAI

    Thank you for your interest in the Interventional Cardiology Fellowship at McLaren Flint/Michigan State University. McLaren Flint is a busy 387 bed tertiary referral center in the mid-Michigan area. There are 6 cardiac catheterization labs and 1 hybrid room. We are a high-volume hospital with exposure to a broad spectrum of cardiac pathology, performing about 1000 PCI annually.

    This 1-year program is designed to provide comprehensive training in Interventional Cardiology where you will be trained in and expected to master techniques and skills in coronary intervention. Training expectations include clinical decision making, case selection, review of procedural benefit/risk, and post-procedural management. As a fellow in our program, you will interact with residents, general cardiology, and pulmonary critical care fellows, and are expected to participate in one or more research projects. In addition to high-risk PCI like CHIP and CTO, fellows will be exposed to, but not expected to achieve proficiency in, structural heart procedures like valvuloplasty, transcatheter aortic valve replacement, Watchman, and PFO closures. Graduates from the program should function as proficient and well-rounded interventional cardiologists eligible for board certification in interventional cardiology.
