  • How did this program prepare you for your next fellowship/future practice?

    The variety of cases that I saw during my general cardiology trained me to deal with bread and butter general cardiology patients to patients with complex cardiac problems. The opportunity to be involved in the number of procedures/studies is plentiful as a general cardiology fellow.

  • Working with Faculty

    All the cardiology faculty at the USD are dedicated to teaching their fellows and gives autonomy in managing patients. They are easily approachable for any question that I had during my training period.

  • Camaraderie between Fellows

    The co-fellows are outstanding and supportive of each other. When I started my general cardiology fellowship at USD, coming from an internal medicine resident to a whole new world of cardiology fellowship training, the senior fellows helped me to make the transition smoothly. They were always there to answer any question. We all shared knowledge during the training period to benefit each other.

  • Working with our Program Administrator

    Amy is an awesome person, and we are lucky to have her as our program administrator. If we need something to get done, she will make it happen very quickly.

  • Training with Dr. Adam

    I was fortunate to train under Dr. Adam’s leadership. He treats his fellows as a close associate than a fellow. He always protects his fellows and supportive of any educational necessity we request. If I am asked to choose again to train my cardiovascular disease training, I would opt to train under Dr. Adam’s leadership.

  • Life in Sioux Falls

    Spending six-years in Sioux Falls, it is like a second home to me. Personally, if I have to choose a place to live and raise children, I would pick Sioux Falls. The people here are very nice, and they treat you with respect. The cost of living is cheap, and you could go anywhere in the city in 15 min.
