We welcome applications from pediatricians who are committed to patient care, education, and scholarship and who have completed an accredited pediatric residency program and are eligible for the Pediatric Boards. Fellows who are board eligible must become board certified during their fellowship in order to be eligible for the Pediatric sub-board.
In general, our fellows are excellent clinicians and have been highly rated residents. All fellows commit to the serious clinical training inherent in our program, and all enter the program with some interest in pursuing a career in academic medicine. Some have had extensive clinical and research experience prior to entering the fellowship, but some have not.
Our graduates go on to become academic and community leaders in the field of pediatric cardiology.
