Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Cardiology Inpatient Service
The Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Cardiology (AHFTC) service is housed at CPMC's Van Ness Campus. Our multidisciplinary team cares for hospitalized patients with heart failure and those whom have received or are being evaluated for advanced heart failure therapies. The fellows play an integral role in the evaluation and management of our patients. In addition, there is a supervisory and teaching role to the cardiovascular disease fellows who rotate through the service. The inpatient clinical experience is robust and comprehensive with exposure to all aspects of the management of advanced heart failure and cardiogenic shock. Experience includes the evaluation and management of temporary and durable mechanical circulatory support including ECMO. Fellows will also gain comprehensive experience in the early post-operative and long-term management of post heart transplant and LVAD patients and their complications.
