Dr. Peter Cordner, a hospitalist at Franklin Memorial Hospital, has been offered and subsequently has accepted a Fellowship in Cardiology at Maine Medical Center.
Maine Medical Center supports two cardiology fellowship positions in each of three years of training. Final selection is carried out through the cardiology subspecialty match sponsored by the National Resident Matching Program.
To be eligible candidates must have successfully completed three years of training in internal medicine in an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) approved residency program and be board eligible in internal medicine. ACGME is a nonprofit council that evaluates and accredits medical residency programs in the United States.
“Candidate selection is extremely competitive and the application process is extensive and based on the quality of previous training in internal medicine, evaluations of competence, and the personal qualities of the candidate,” said Dr. David Dixon, Franklin Community Health Network vice president for medical staff affairs and education. “We are incredibly fortunate that a physician of Dr. Cordner’s caliber—plus one with an understanding of our community needs—has accepted the challenge of further rigorous training in order to return to our community with the tools to provide up-to-date sophisticated cardiac care.”
Dr. Cordner’s fellowship will begin July 2011. The three-year program is organized as block clinical rotations through the cardiology consult service, inpatient services, the catheterization laboratory, noninvasive laboratories, pediatric cardiology, and elective rotations. Dr. Cordner will return to Franklin Memorial Hospital after he has competed his cardiology training to head the cardiology department.
As hospitalist at Franklin Memorial since 2006, Dr. Cordner provides medical care for patients during a hospital stay. His patients include those who are admitted without a physician or patients whose physician has an office-based practice only. Hospitalists take care of patients from admission through discharge.
