The Advanced Heart Failure and Heart Transplant training program at Michigan Medicine has as its principal goal the training of academically oriented physicians to assume their roles as future leaders in investigative and clinical cardiology. Central to this purpose is the exposure of trainees to the concepts, approaches, and techniques that represent the latest advances in clinical cardiology and cardiovascular sciences in order to prepare them to work at the forefront of their chosen field of investigation.
Trainees will work with patients with mild to severe forms of chronic heart failure (also know as congestive heart failure or CHF), those whose lives are threatened by acute heart failure, and those who are candidates for/recipients of a heart transplant as the result of any form of heart failure.
- Expert medical management for the treatment of heart failure
- Access to advanced surgical care where indicated
- A range of heart-assisting technology
- Comprehensive, patient-centric rehabilitation programs
- A post-transplant tele-management team of nurses, and an Inpatient team of nurse practitioners and physician assistants to assure safe, collaborative, team-base care
