Fellows are immersed in a dynamic clinical pediatric cardiology service at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, and play a central role within the cardiology team in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Rotations through all subspecialities within pediatric cardiology occur in 2-week blocks. The standard schedule of rotations will give fellows a solid foundation in imaging and catheterization skills, arrhythmia management, outpatient evaluation, and in the care of inpatients, including postoperative cardiac patients.
All rotations take place in St. Louis Children’s Hospital, a 250-bed hospital founded in 1879 that is one of the premier children’s hospitals in the United States. St. Louis Children’s Hospital is the pediatric teaching hospital for Washington University School of Medicine. It is a regional and national referral center with approximately 300 open heart and 75-80 closed heart procedures per year performed by two full-time pediatric cardiovascular surgeons.
