iami Children’s Hospital (MCH) is proud to have an ACGME
accredited Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship Program. The fellowship is a three-year traiing program with two fellows per year. The Heart Program at MCH has an outstanding faculty of 15 cardiologists / cardiac intensivists, 3 cardiac anesthesiologists, and 2 cardiac surgeons that participate in training the fellows.
The goal of the fellowship is to graduate well-rounded pediatric cardiologists able to provide the highest quality of care to patients from infancy through adulthood. The fellowship will be a three-year program divided into 24 months of clinical rotations and 12 months of research. In addition, fellows will enjoy a robust clinical experience rotating through our dedicated 18 bed cardiac-intensive care unit, inpatient floor, ambulatory offices, electrophysiology lab, non-invasive imaging lab and a new state-of-the art hybrid catheterization lab. Non-invasive imaging includes TTE (2D and 3D), TEE, fetal echo and cardiac MRI.
The cardiac catheterization program performs over 450 cardiac catheterizations a year with a strong emphasis on interventional procedures. The cardiac surgical program lead by Dr. Redmond Burke
, Chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery, performs over 250 open-heart cases a year with one of the lowest mortality results in the country (real-time results on www.pediatricheartsurgery.com
