Pediatric Congenital Heart Surgery Fellowship
The division of Cardiac Surgery at Phoenix Children’s Center for Heart Care, includes three full-time, board-certified cardiac surgeons, all of whom have extensive experience in congenital cardiac surgery including congenital heart surgery procedures in adults. This one to two-year training program will provide introductory to advanced training in congenital heart surgery. The twelve-month program is dedicated to peri-operative management of congenital cardiac disease, didactic teaching in surgery, and graduated operating room experience allowing for a progression of responsibility in the intraoperative and postoperative management of patients. The advanced, 24-month program is aimed at fellows who expect to primarily practice pediatric cardiac surgery. The goal being to provide trainees with sufficient experience to perform most congenital heart procedures as an independent surgeon, particularly with procedures involving those in the neonatal age group.
