Since Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) was declared a pandemic on 3/12/2020 by the World Health Organization (WHO), diagnosed cases have continued to be on the rise worldwide, even though rates of new case detection seem to be stabilizing here in the United States . This pandemic has impacted delivery of healthcare as well as health care workers in many aspects. In this article we discuss the impact of COVID-19 on cardiology fellowship training, early career concerns of fellows in training, and some suggestions to help training programs to cope with these challenges. It remains unclear how this pandemic will impact our health systems for the foreseeable future and thus a call to action is needed to reassess education needs and strategies of trainees during the pandemic not only in the interest of our FITs but also their future patients.
