ECCRI provides trianing to under- and post-graduate students, residents, fellows, postdoctoral fellows and MD research fellows in the cardiovascular sciences and cardiovascular medicine.  Trainees are mentored by experts in the field of cardiology and have the opportunity to be involved in groundbreaking clinical research. 

Additionally, ECCRI sponsors the bi-monthly Clinical Cardiovascular Research Conference in conjunction with EPICORE. This conference features both Emory and visiting faculty discussing novel areas of cardiovascular research along with innovative tools, technologies, and approaches for conducting clinical research. 

ECCRI also sponsors continuing medical education to update practicing cardiologists on rapidly evolving developments in the field.

Continuing Medical Education

ECCRI offers several continuing medical education (CME) courses throughout the year.  Featuring experts from Emory and other nationally renowned faculty, these courses provide opportunities for physicians, nurses, and other allied health professionals to learn about the latest advances in a variety of topics related to cardiovascular medicine. 

All CME events are accredited by the American Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).

Research Internships


The Emory Cardiology Research Internship Program (CRIP) provides a unique opportunity for qualified medical and post-graduate students to receive valuable experience in clinical and/or translational research. The program’s goals are to expose interns to clinical research and provide them with hands-on experience in the conduct and administration of clinical research studies. Interns will work directly with experienced investigators, research coordinators, and cardiology fellows to learn about all aspects of clinical research including human subjects’ safety, data analysis, research ethics, and regulatory requirements.

Cardiology Fellowships

The overall goal of Emory's Cardiology Fellowship Training program is to continue to develop and prepare outstanding individuals for careers in academic medicine and research. The curriculum is designed to provide comprehensive training in the evaluation and management of a wide variety of patients with acute and chronic cardiovascular diseases. During training, each fellow is exposed to both intensive didactic instruction and substantial direct patient care experiences. Together, these experiences equip fellows to diagnose and care for the gamut of cardiovascular diseases including: acute and chronic coronary artery disease, acute and chronic heart failure, cardiac arrhythmias, lipid disorders, hypertension, cardiomyopathy, valvular heart disease, pulmonary heart disease, peripheral vascular disease, infectious and inflammatory heart disease, and adult congenital heart disease.
