New Training Guidelines For Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship Programs Released

The Pulse of ACC | New training guidelines for pediatric cardiology fellowship programs were released March 13 by the ACC, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Heart Association and the Society of Pediatric Cardiology Training Program Directors. In addition to now fulfilling the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education’s new criteria for training programs, the revised training guidelines make updates to task forces and include recommendations for advanced training within sections. The new task force on pulmonary hypertension, advanced heart failure and transplantation joins the previously established task force chapters on general pediatric cardiology, noninvasive imaging, cardiac catheterization, electrophysiology, critical care, adult congenital heart disease and research. The report identifies the core competencies required of all pediatric cardiology fellows to complete training.
