Cardiology | Fellowships
The Pediatric Cardiology fellowship program at Washington University School of Medicine and St. Louis Children's Hospital is accredited by the Council for Graduate Medical Education. The goal of the training program in Pediatric Cardiology is to prepare fellows to become pediatric cardiologists able to independently supervise the diagnosis and care of infants, children and teenagers/young adults with all forms of congenital and acquired cardiac disease. This includes care of patients after cardiac surgery in the intensive care unit, step-down unit, and outpatient settings. In addition, fellows gain experience in research and teaching to prepare them for a career in academic medicine. Most fellows will complete 2 years of clinical rotations and 1 year of research/electives. Selected fellows with a commitment to a career in basic science research can spend 18 months in a focused research program. The program offers three positions a year through the National Resident Matching Program.
Questions have been raised about fellow eligibility for the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program administered by the U.S. Department of Education (DOE). Based on recent verbal guidance from the DOE, our fellows are eligible for application to this program so long as they work 30 hours a week at the University.
