Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh’s Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship is a 3-year ACGME accredited program as mandated by the Sub-board of Pediatric Cardiology of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
The program has three primary missions: clinical care, education and research with outstanding faculty leadership in each area. The fellowship program focuses on the basic core areas of pediatric cardiology including: history and physical cardiac evaluation in the inpatient and ambulatory setting, long-term follow-up of patients, cardiac catheterization, echocardiography and other non-invasive imaging techniques, electrocardiography, electrophysiology, exercise physiology, neonatal and fetal cardiology, cardiothoracic surgery, cardiac intensive care, transplantation, and consultation/liaison with affiliated hospitals. A minimum of eleven months is designated for research.
Increasingly, many fellows decide to develop a particular expertise within cardiology, either clinically or research oriented. For that reason, the third year of fellowship allows greater flexibility to pursue a specific academic interest. We also sponsor competitive fourth year fellowships for those interested in pursuing a physician-scientist pathway. These advanced fellowships will have a primary research focus, while also allowing for further acquisition of clinical skills in subspecialty areas of pediatric cardiology. Fellows may also participate in the University’s Clinical Research Training Program and receive either a certificate (one year) or Masters in Clinical Research (two years).
