Conference Schedule

Clinical experiences are complemented by a series of teaching conferences in the Pediatric Cardiology division and in the Department of Pediatrics. Teaching conferences for pediatric cardiology fellows are held daily in a variety of formats and venues, some led by attendings and others by fellows. In both didactic and interactive sessions, fellows receive weekly education on core cardiology subjects and research fundamentals; discuss echo and angiography cases; present cardiology cases for discussion of medical and/or surgical management; and review inpatient cases. Monthly conferences include Morbidity and Mortality conference, Journal Club, and Cardiac ICU case conference. Cardiac Pathology conference is held at least twice/year as is the fellows’ Curriculum Review, during which fellows meet with the program director and division director to discuss administrative and other issues regarding the fellowship program.
