  Learn More About the Directory and How to Be Included

Since the number of available positions may vary from year to year, the ACC will survey programs for updates in the spring and late summer. Spring updates will be posted in April/May and summer updates in August.

In order to allow applicants to interview broadly before they are asked to commit to a program, the majority of ACHD programs listed here have agreed to withhold any offers until Dec. 6, 2017 at 9 a.m. PT/noon ET. Participating programs can be identified in the program details.

Please click the button above to download the ACHD Common Application, which has been developed and approved by the ACPC Section ACHD Training Directors Working Group and is accepted by most ACHD fellowship programs as noted under program details below.

If you would like your program added to this list, please contact Olivia Kranz, okranz@acc.org. For any questions regarding the coordination of offer dates, please contact Jeannette Lin, MD, jeannettelin@mednet.ucla.edu.
