With our academic resources, patient volume, and experienced and supportive faculty, we are uniquely positioned to train future leaders in Pediatric Cardiac subspecialities and QI/PS. The aim is to prepare the fellow for a career in a cardiology subspecialty of their choice while integrating training in quality improvement and patient safety leadership and education.

Fellowship Progression:

This 4th year is designed to support training in a cardiac subspecialty (advanced imaging, heart failure/transplant, genetics, EP, etc.) along with focused training to achieve a high level of proficiency in QI/PS concepts. The trainee would be expected to contribute meaningfully to the clinical and academic advancement of the field of QI/PS. The didactic and experiential component of the fellowship provide the orientation and exposure needed to jump-start a career in QI/PS work. The clinical portion of the fellowship occurs in partnership with our world-class TCH cardiac subspeciality training programs, and interviewees will be paired with leaders in these programs to assure competency and appropriate experience.

The 1-year fellowship (4th year) is considered advanced specialty training for physicians who have completed both a 3-year pediatric residency and 3 years of Core-Pediatric Cardiology fellowship. It is approved by the Texas State Medical Board, and Baylor GME; it is not an ACGME-sponsored program and there is currently no board certification available.
