Cardiology Fellowship

Welcome to Our Program

The Samaritan Cardiology Fellowship is a three-year post-graduate fellowship program designed to train outstanding clinical cardiologists in a collegial and supportive environment. Our primary goal is to assure a fellow-centered experience that provides the diversity of clinical pathology, procedural volume and multimodal imaging needed to confidently pursue individual career goals. Our motivated faculty members serve as mentors and teachers to support these goals, whether fellows choose to pursue further fellowship training in one of the cardiovascular subspecialties, or practice general cardiology.

Consistently ranked as one of the nation’s best 100 places to live, and frequently recognized as a top college town, Corvallis serves as the idyllic Pacific Northwest backdrop to our training experience. The program is housed in Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, a Level II trauma center, and the flagship hospital for Samaritan Health Services, which serves more than 250,000 residents in the mid-Willamette Valley and central Oregon Coast. As a fellow, trainees will have the opportunity to work with and teach residents from the hospital’s six residency programs, as well as medical students from nearby Western University of Health Sciences, COMP-Northwest.

The program has received Continued Accreditation from the ACGME, effective 2020.

Curriculum & Didactics

From caring for patients in the hospital and clinic settings to performing procedures to managing a team of residents, interns, and medical students, the clinical experience is designed to provide fellows with robust training.

This is done in the context of complex cases of heart failure, arrhythmia, ischemic heart disease, and valvular heart disease while maintaining a focus on delivering excellent patient care in an academic setting.

Explore Our Region

Regional cardiac care from the Willamette Valley to the central Oregon Coast is funneled through all five Samaritan Health hospitals to the Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Corvallis, Oregon.

The importance of work-life balance is increasingly recognized to reduce burnout. The Pacific Northwest and Willamette Valley offer beautiful landscapes and endless recreation in wildlife areas from the coast to the cascade mountains.


We participate in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) program. To be considered, fellowship applications must be submitted through ERAS. Please follow the ERAS directions regarding applications and required documents.

Learn more from the ERAS Fellowship Documents Office.

We will review all ERAS applications and contact qualified applicants early in the fall and interview those who successfully complete our initial screening process. Applicants are selected on the basis of academic performance and personal qualifications regardless of race, sex, color, religion or national origin.
