Assistent
Explanation:
"Cardiology" in your context tips it off. It's not academic.
fellow = Kamerad, Arbeitskollege, graduierter Stipendat.
But I believe they just mean a medical assistant.

If you think you context demands a more formal translation then "Assistenzartzt" would be absolutely correct according to the Oxford Duden.
