Cardiac Registry Fellowship in Pathology of Childhood Heart Disease

Cardiac Registry Fellowship in Pathology of Childhood Heart Disease

The Cardiac Registry at Boston Children’s Hospital was created in 1965, by Dr. Richard Van Praagh, as a joint project sponsored by the Departments of Cardiology, Pathology, and Cardiac Surgery, to further the understanding of congenital heart disease.

The Registry now houses more than 3,700 heart specimens – all with complete clinical and anatomic descriptions. The Registry provides cardiac autopsy services for Boston Children’s Hospital, as well as some referring hospitals. Since its inception, the Registry has produced more than 300 peer-reviewed publications, described 13 new congenital heart defects, suggested 5 cardiac operations, and trained countless fellows, residents, and other medical specialists.

The Cardiac Registry Fellowship in Pathology of Childhood Heart Disease is a one-year fellowship program.
