Cardiac Intensive Care Fellowship

Cardiac Intensive Care Fellowship

The Seattle Children’s Hospital senior clinical fellowship in cardiac intensive care is a 12-month training program in the care of critically ill patients with congenital and acquired heart disease. The curriculum is individualized based on the fellow’s prior background and future career goals.

The fellowship provides for a minimum of 6 months of direct service time in our 24-bed high acuity cardiac intensive care unit. During that time, fellows are expected to achieve competency in perioperative care of patients with all forms of congenital heart disease, mechanical support including VAD and ECMO, acute heart failure management, and care of medically complex patients with congenital or acquired heart disease.

The remaining six months are intended to develop the trainees understanding and comfort with pediatric cardiology applicable to the CICU and includes exposure in chronic heart failure management, electrophysiology, catheterization lab, operating room observation time, echocardiography, and cardiac anesthesia. Fellows are given graduated responsibility through the year of training, with the expectation that by the end of the year they will be prepared for a faculty position in a high volume academic cardiac intensive care unit.
