Advanced Pediatric Cardiac Imaging  Curriculum


  1. Prepare congenital cardiologists for an academic career specializing in the performance and interpretation of multimodality imaging for acquired pediatric and congenital heart disease in patients of all ages.
  2. Establish competence and independence for the trainee to work unsupervised as a new faculty member
  3. Provide didactic and clinical opportunities for the trainee to teach and supervise sonographers and more junior trainees
  4. Provide opportunities for active participation in research and quality improvement involving multimodality congenital cardiac imaging

Our program accepts one advanced cardiac imaging fellow per year. This structured training program is ideal for the applicant interested in a career in congenital/pediatric cardiac imaging, including research/quality improvement, and teaching. Exposure to all modalities (TTE, TEE, fetal echo, cardiac CT, cardiac MRI) is provided. Clinical time is divided among the various modalities with flexibility depending on individual interest and career aspirations. Fellows will participate in didactic and clinical conferences. Fellows will take some call and be expected to teach and provide back-up to junior cardiology fellows. Fellows will participate in research with the goal of an abstract submission by the end-of-year with expectation of a completed manuscript thereafter. 

Time: 85% clinical, 15% research

Clinical time is divided among modalities with flexibility depending on individual interest.
