The Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship Training Program at Children’s National is an ACGME-accredited program committed to the training of outstanding physicians dedicated to the care of patients with pediatric cardiovascular disease. During the program, fellows develop skills in clinical care, research and teaching over a 36-month period. Fellows benefit from the vast expertise of, and dedicated teaching by, faculty from Cardiology, as well as the other programs within the Children’s National Heart Institute.
The CNHI is a multidisciplinary team comprising Cardiology, Cardiovascular Surgery, Cardiac Intensive Care and Cardiac Anesthesia. It is a national and international referral center and is the largest congenital heart program in the mid-Atlantic region. Our diverse patient population offers a robust clinical experience in all facets of pediatric cardiology. Our research benefits from the resources of Children’s National including the Children’s Research Institute, the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation, the Children’s National Global Health Initiative and the Clinical and Translational Science Institute, a partnership with George Washington University. We maintain strong collaborations with the National Institutes of Health’s National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute and Washington Hospital Center. Children’s National is also a member of the Pediatric Heart Network.
