Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care

Goals & Objectives

Riley hospital for Children at Indiana University, Division of Pediatric Critical Care, offers a one year non-ACGME pediatric cardiac intensive care training fellowship to those who have completed an accredited fellowship in pediatric critical care medicine and are interested in achieving expertise in the most advanced aspects of pediatric cardiac intensive care.

The primary goal of the Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care fellowship is to provide trainees the necessary specific knowledge base and experience to perform the comprehensive management of critically ill pediatric patients with congenital or acquired heart disease. In addition, the fellowship seeks to provoke a firm understanding of physiology so that our fellows will effectively integrate echocardiography, invasive cardiac Cath data and clinical examination findings to form a complete understanding of a patient’s status and to strengthen the trainees’ ability to build effective collaborative treatment given the numerous providers who participate in the care of a patient with critical cardiac disease.
