This article supports the view that in the future our nation will need more general cardiologists who perform no high-tech procedures than we are currently training. It also addresses the reason graduates of American medical schools, especially women who make up 40% to 50% of the graduating class, are not choosing cardiology fellowship programs as they were previously. A remedy for this serious problem is offered.
