Mission Statement

To produce physicians embodying the Ignatian value of "Cura Personalis" who aspire to become transformative leaders in their practice, institution and community by emphasizing clinical and scholastic excellence, patient-centered care, life-long learning, and wholesome development of the Individual.


Our Vision is that the Interventional Cardiology Fellowship program will be the premier site for interventional cardiovascular training in the region. We will accomplish this through a comprehensive and varied experience with our outstanding faculty, a diversity of experience that encompasses the coronary, peripheral, and structural arenas, and an emphasis on quality care, appropriateness and research. 

Program Aims

The goal of our Interventional Cardiovascular Fellowship to train our Fellows to be well prepared to navigate the complex world of Interventional Cardiology by fostering competence in the clinical knowledge, procedural skills, clinical judgment, professionalism, and interpersonal skills required as a specialist in Interventional Cardiology.

In order to achieve this goal, we expect our fellow:

1) To understand the effectiveness and limitations of coronary, peripheral vascular and structural heart interventions in order to select patients and procedure types appropriately.

2) To achieve the appropriate cognitive knowledge and technical skills needed to perform interventional procedures at the level of quality attainable through the present state of the art.

3) To foster an attitude of life-long learning and critical thinking skills needed to gain from experience and incorporate new developments.

4) To understand and commit to quality assessment and improvement in procedure performance.

The Creighton University, Division of Cardiology, Interventional Fellowship program at Creighton University Medical Center is a one year training program geared toward obtaining clinical competence in coronary intervention.  The fellow will experience the full range of coronary diagnostic and interventional techniques including PTCA, stent placement, IVUS, FFR, etc.  The fellow will become competent in both femoral as well as the radial approach.  The majority of our interventions are performed via the radial approach.  In addition to coronary intervention, the fellow will become experienced in carotid renal and peripheral interventions.   This program functions as an integral component of the general cardiology fellowship program. 


The training program fulfills the requirements for training as stated by the American Board of Internal Medicine. The program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and was recently given the highest accreditation of 5 years.
