The goal of the Duke Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship program is to train future leaders who will provide expert, compassionate care for patients with congenital and acquired heart disease, as well as advance the field through a lifetime of thoughtful inquisition and research.

Fellows train directly under a diverse faculty with a great depth of experience. Particular strengths of the program include: 

  • Interventional catheterization
  • Electrophysiology
  • Non-invasive imaging, including cardiac MRI and CT
  • Fetal cardiology
  • Adult congenital heart disease
  • Heart failure and cardiac transplant
  • Health care delivery and outcomes research
  • Molecular biology and translational investigation   

Of the three years of required training in Pediatric Cardiology, a minimum of 24 months are spent in the clinical arena and 12 months are available for research. While patient care and introductory clinical research skills are taught to all fellows, basic science training is available, as is advanced training in clinical research.
