Our well-rounded, comprehensive curriculum prepares you for adult congenital heart disease board certification and to be a leader in the field. We offer substantial flexibility for you to tailor the program to meet your personal and professional goals.
- Training beyond the patient at the UW Health Clinical Simulation Program, where you cab hone your skills in catheterization, echocardiography, electrophysiology and more
- Integrated educational programming encompassing expertise from pediatric and adult cardiology
- Weekly and monthly educational conferences in adult, pediatric, and adult congenital cardiology
- Division of Cardiovascular Medicine conferences
We craft experiences and schedules to your interest and entrance pathway (Adult Cardiology, Peds-Peds Cardiology, Med Peds-Peds Cardiology).
All pathways include six months of dedicated research time.
Fellows rotate at two hospitals: UW Health University Hospital and UnityPoint Health–Meriter Hospital.
Our division is home to robust research on heart failure, arrhythmias, vascular biology and imaging. It's part of our department's rich research environment and a vibrant campus community of inquiry.
All fellows must participate in some form of scholarly activity: manuscripts, book chapters, abstracts, bench research, clinical research, or QI project participation. We encourage you to tailor this work to align with your interests and skills.
Your schedule includes research blocks to develop and complete a project for submission to a society meeting and/or manuscript submission to a peer-reviewed publication. We also provide financial support to attend local and national conferences.
If you have a particularly strong interest in research, please ask about the possibility of additional post-grad research on our T32 research grant.
The Department of Medicine's Fellow Medical Education (FAME) Training Track trains fellows to become effective clinician-teachers and scholars.
Our department also offers several educator resources designed to address the issues and questions that educators confront regularly.
