The Division of Cardiology at LSUHSC-S is committed to achieving excellence in patient care, training physicians to become Cardiovascular specialists, and searching for newer diagnostic and therapeutic modalities by way of clinical and translational research.

We have state of the art facilities for diagnosis of diseases affecting the blood vessels, heart valves, and myocardium. These facilities include ECG, exercise stress testing, echocardiography, cardiac CT, PET scanner, interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, and nuclear medicine evaluation. Our faculty includes experts in arrhythmia treatment, coronary and peripheral artery interventions and cardiac surgery.

We train physicians who will teach and practice cardiovascular medicine in communities here in the United States and abroad. Our three year fellowship has been continuously accredited by the ACGME since 1982. In July 2010 we also started Interventional Cardiology Fellowship Program.
