Pediatric Heart Failure/Heart Transplant Fellowship

Pediatric Heart Failure/Heart Transplant Fellowship

The Pediatric Heart Failure/Heart Transplant 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 one-year fellowship has openings for one trainee each year.

The cardiomyopathy, heart failure and transplant service at Lurie Children’s is a busy service, comprised of 6 transplant cardiologists, 3 transplant surgeons, 11 APNs (4 outpatient and 7 inpatient), 3 outpatient nurses, a dedicated VAD coordinator, and various additional dedicated services, including psychology, pharmacy, and social work. We perform 20-30 heart transplants annually on average and directly manage patients with primary cardiomyopathy, heart failure secondary to congenital heart disease, and pediatric and ACHD patients post-transplant on a dedicated inpatient service. We have a well-established ECMO/ECPR and ventricular assist device program to support infants, children, adolescents and young adults of all sizes and diagnoses with acute and chronic low cardiac output.
