Medical students will train for an additional year to become specialty practitioners.

Advanced Heart Failure is expected to hit America as the baby-boomer generation ages past 60. St.Vincent hospital in Indianapolis has earned a fellowship that could put the hospital at the forefront of medicine that combats issues like congestive heart failure.

The fellowship adds another year to resident physician training, which allows young doctors to move from medical students to independent, specialty practitioners.

Advanced Heart Failure and Transplantation Cardiology Fellowship program director Dr. Mary Norine Walsh says the new fellowship program adds to the array of medical education options at St.Vincent, and keeps it nationally competitive with other leading hospitals.
