|Children's National Cardiology Fellowship Overview
Research experience occupies approximately 13 of the 36 months of training and occurs predominantly in the second and third years. Opportunities for clinical and basic science research are available with Children’s National faculty in Cardiology and other divisions as well as at the National Institutes of Health. Fellows are provided support to prepare their research for presentation at national meetings and for publication in peer-reviewed journals. Recent fellow research projects have included screening for rheumatic heart disease in Uganda, a review of femoral vein homografts used in the Norwood procedure, computational models of flow dynamics in reconstructed aortic arches, comparative cardiac embryology of the murine and human fetus, percutaneous VSD closure in pigs using interventional MRI, and echocardiography in mouse models of congenital heart disease.
