Adult Congenital Heart Disease
The Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD) Fellowship Program at Washington University School of Medicine is an ACGME accredited two year advanced fellowship. At the end of the program, graduating fellows will be eligible for board certification in Adult Congenital Heart Disease by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM). The ACHD fellowship is administered through the Cardiovascular Division of the Department of Internal Medicine in conjunction with the Center for Adults with Congenital Heart Disease at Washington University School of Medicine, an ACHA accredited Comprehensive Care Center for patients with ACHD that provides clinical care for over 1800 outpatient clinic visits and 250 inpatient admissions per year. This fellowship provides advanced training in the field of ACHD, high risk pregnancy, pre-conception counseling, pulmonary hypertension, critical care, CHD imaging, electrophysiology, diagnostic and interventional catheterization, advanced heart failure, including advanced therapies such as ventricular assist devices and transplantation, and cardiac surgery in the adult patient with congenital heart disease.
During the pediatric cardiology categorical fellowship, fellowship will spend time during their 3rd in the ACHD program to gain exposure to this subspecialize field.
