Training Program in Cardiovascular Disease

Dr. Barry Rosenzweig serves as the Program Director of our ACGME-accredited Training Program in Cardiovascular Disease and oversees both the Clinician Educator and Physician Scientist tracks for the three years of accredited training.  Dr. Rosenzweig is Associate Professor of Medicine, Director of the Bellevue Hospital Center Echocardiography Laboratory, and has decades of experience in graduate medical education. His clinical and research interests are centered upon the clinical application of cardiovascular ultrasound techniques. Dr. Jeffrey Lorin serves as an Associate Program Director. He is an interventional cardiologist at the Manhattan campus of the New York Harbor Veterans Administration Medical Center and Director of the Cardiology Consultation Service and Cardiology Clinic at that site. Dr. Larry Phillips also serves as Associate Program Director. Dr. Phillips is Director of Nuclear Cardiology, attends in the John Wyckoff Cardiology Clinic as well as at multiple other educational venues of the Training Program.

Training Program in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology

Dr. Larry Chinitz serves as the Program Director of our ACGME-accredited Training Program in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology.  Dr. Chinitz is the Alvin Benjamin and Kenneth Coyle Family Professor in Medicine and Cardiac Electrophysiology, Director of Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology and the NYU Heart Rhythm Center.  His clinical and research interests are focus on novel treatment modalities for both atrial and ventricular arrhythmias.

Training Program in Interventional Cardiology

Dr. Frederick Feit serves as the Program Director of our ACGME-accredited Training Program in Interventional Cardiology.  Dr. Feit is Associate Professor of Medicine and Director of Interventional Cardiology. Dr. Feit is a nationally recognized expert in the areas of percutaneous coronary artery intervention, adjuvant antiplatelet and antithrombin therapy, acute myocardial infarction and diabetes mellitus.  He has authored or co-authored many articles on these subjects and has been widely recognized as one of the early leaders in the field of thrombolytic therapy for acute MI, and more recently for his work highlighting the importance of reducing hemorrhagic complications of catheter-based therapies.  Dr. John Copolla is the Associate Program Director.  He is an interventional cardiologist and renowned educator who has previously served as Cardiology Fellowship Program Director and Interventional Fellowship Program Director at St. Vincent's Medical Center.

Training Program in Heart Failure and Advanced Cardiac Therapeutics

Dr. Stuart Katz serves as the Program Director of our Training Program in Heart Failure and Advanced Cardiac Therapeutics.  Dr. Katz is the Kimmel Professor of Advanced Cardiac Therapeutics.  His major scientific focus is patient-oriented research in human physiology and pharmacology, including the role of iron metabolism in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, and the cytoprotective role of erythropoietin in acute coronary syndromes. In addition to his extensive experience in the conduct of patient-oriented research, Dr. Katz holds an NIH K24 award in patient-oriented research and has a strong track record in mentoring young investigators with a diverse array of educational and ethnic backgrounds. 

Training Program in Cardiovascular Sciences

Dr. Fishman serves as Program Director of our NIH-funded Training Program in Cardiovascular Sciences.  Dr. Fishman is Director of the Division of Cardiology and the William Goldring Professor of Medicine.  His laboratory focuses on various aspects of cardiovascular biology and disease with a particular focus on cardiac electrophysiology and arrhythmia mechanisms and cardiovascular genetics. Dr. Fishman currently serves as chair of the NIH Electrophysiology, Signaling, Transport and Arrhythmias (ESTA) Study Section, is a member of the AHA Scientific Sessions Program Committee; and chair of the Basic Science Committee and member of the Heart Rhythm Society.  He also serves on the Board of Trustees of the Heart Rhythm Society and American Heart Association Founders Affiliate.
