Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship

The pediatric cardiology fellowship program is a multi-disciplinary, collaborative effort at the Children's Heart Center (CHC) of the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC). The program includes rotations in adult congenital heart disease, cardiac catheterization, cardiac critical care, cardiac inpatient/consults, electrophysiology, exercise physiology, heart failure and transplantation, non-invasive imaging, outpatient cardiology and cardiac pathology.

Review the topics in the left navigation for further details. Our program directors have created a fellowship program that will offer strong clinical and didactic educational experiences in all facets of pediatric cardiology. As above, we offer experiences in all subspecialties of pediatric cardiology. The CHC and UMMC also offer many opportunities for research. Faculty members are involved in numerous scholarly activities including retrospective and prospective research, as well as experiments in a newly accredited animal laboratory. These are all fertile grounds for research by fellows.

Mississippi has the lowest number of active physicians per capita of any state in the country. UMMC and the CHC are fully invested in training the nation's premier physicians to provide world-class care for citizens of the state, nation and world.

We will accept applications through ERAS (main page for applicants, pediatric cardiology programs).
