Pediatric Cardiology

The pediatric cardiology rotation is designed to expose trainees in cardiovascular medicine to all aspects of this specialty. Recent advances in the treatment of pediatric patients with primary arrhythmias and with congenital heart disease have resulted in the survival of many to adulthood. The primary focus of the rotation is on outpatient evaluation, including appropriate noninvasive diagnostic testing. Strong emphasis is placed on physical diagnosis, echocardiography and magnetic resonance imaging. Trainees participate in regular conferences and inpatient rounds on patients who have undergone surgical procedures. They gain familiarity with the physical features, diagnostic manifestations and appropriate therapeutic approaches for care of patients with congenital heart disease.
