Our Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship rotations provide training in:
- Intensive care
- Cardiac Catheterization
It is now mandated that each fellow be evaluated and they in turn evaluate their mentor and supervising attending and the rotations. This process is performed on a quarterly basis using an online program called New Innovations. Each resident is mandated to log in their work hours and maintain a procedure log.
When on call fellows are responsible for all in patients including those in pediatric surgical intensive care units. If a fellow needs to be in hospital for 24 hours, they need to sign out to the research fellow who would cover their clinical duties the next day. Fifty percent of all calls will be in the first year and 35 percent in the second and the rest in the third year. All neonatal transport calls are shared with NICU fellows and average about two calls a month. All neonatal transport calls are reimbursed with monetary compensation whether one goes for transport or not. All calls are beeper calls.
A sample weekly didactic schedule is shown below. I addition to this there is cardio-thoracic surgical conference every Wednesday at 3 pm to 5 pm. Echo didactics with Dr. Parness every Wednesday 5 pm until 6 pm.
