In brief: 3+1

Cardiology fellowship is 3 years following 3 years of internal medicine.
Interventional cardiology is an additional 1 year after the 3-year cardiology fellowship. So, non-interventional cardiology is 6 years after 4 years of medical school following 4 years of college. Interventional cardiology is 7 years after 8 years of college and medical school (not including a few 6-year bs/md programs).

In brief: 1 + 3 for cardiology

After completing an internal medicine residency, one must complete a cardiology fellowship before specializing further into interventional cardiology.
This means 3 years of i.M. Plus 2-3 of cardiology (depending on the program) plus 1-2 of interventional. It amounts to an average of 7 years of training after graduating from medical school, but marriage and family can go on simultaneously!

In brief: 1-2 yr fellowship

3 yr im, 3 yr card, 1 yr intervention.
Some places you could do 1 year intervention but most places are switching to 2 year interventional.
