Pediatric cardiology fellowship

The program aims to produce compassionate, ethical graduates with comprehensive experience in all foundational aspects of pediatric cardiology.

With a pediatric fellowship from CHoR, you are:

  • Encouraged to practice “servant-oriented” leadership skills with service not only to patients and families, but also to the institution and academic community as a whole.
  • Well-prepared to enter academic or community practice, or pursue additional subspecialty fellowship training.
  • Knowledgeable about the basic and clinical sciences related to the normal and diseased cardiovascular system at a variety of developmental stages ranging from the fetus to the adult.
  • Able to adeptly provide collaborative care with other specialists within the constructs of the current medical system, and be capable of conducting and critically appraising scientific research.

Our graduates pursue careers in private practice and academic medicine at an equivalent rate and have consistently been successful in obtaining positions of their choice.
