The Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Fellowship is based in the Division of Cardiology at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, an academic affiliate of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. This program has a rich history of training fellows in Cardiac Intensive Care since 1998. This one-year fellowship has openings for two trainees each year.
Educational opportunities will include an involved didactic series with topics dedicated to cardiac intensive care issues and an in-situ simulation-based curriculum to rehearse management strategies as well as teamwork and communication. We also conduct weekly professor rounds, which is a facilitated small-group discussion on an interesting CICU service patient. In addition, there are weekly cardiovascular surgery care conferences, visiting professors and opportunities to attend national meetings.
