The three-year fellowship in pediatric cardiology is an ACGME-accredited program designed to prepare exceptional clinicians and investigators to become active participants and leaders in academic pediatric cardiology. The clinical training is provided at Rady Children’s Hospital through the UC San Diego School of Medicine.
The program currently accepts two fellows each year and has the potential for additional subspecialty training in interventional catheterization, electrophysiology and cardiac development/genetics. Fellows are trained through extensive experience as supervised primary caregivers for inpatients and outpatients, typically with one-on-one teaching by faculty cardiologists. Additionally, there is an established didactic conference series attended by all fellows.
