Children’s Hospital Colorado, in conjunction with the University of Colorado School of Medicine, is pleased to offer a funded position for a fourth year of advanced training in pediatric heart failure and transplantation.
We are looking for well qualified candidates who have completed a fellowship in pediatric cardiology at an ACGME accredited program and will be board eligible by the start of the 4th year.
The cardiomyopathy, heart failure, and transplant service at Children's Hospital Colorado is a rapidly growing and busy service. We performed our 400th heart transplant in 2014, and we currently provide long-term follow-up care to about 200 heart transplant recipients.
We directly manage patients with cardiomyopathy, heart failure, and transplant on the inpatient service. We perform approximately 10-15 heart transplants in children annually.
We also have a well-established ventricular assist device program and offer support for infants and children of all sizes. We are active in basic science, translational, and clinical research related to heart failure and transplant.
Our cardiomyopathy program follows over 400 children with dilated, restrictive, hypertrophic, and non-compaction cardiomyopathy. The transplant cardiologists and cardiomyopathy specialists include Drs. Shelley Miyamoto, Scott Auerbach, Melanie Everitt, Kathryn Chatfield, and Stephanie Nakano.
Fourth year applications will require a copy of your curriculum vitae, at least three letters of reference, a personal statement highlighting why you wish to become a Pediatric Heart Failure and Transplant Fellow at Children’s Hospital Colorado. If you are not a USA citizen, include a copy of your ECFMG. Please bear in mind that you would need to acquire a J1 visa if selected as a candidate for our program. Incomplete or late applications will not be considered. It is your responsibility to ensure all required information has been received.
All applications should be submitted by Aug 31.
