Welcome

Thank you for your interest in the Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship Program at the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital.

Our ACGME accredited fellowship will expose you to all aspects of Pediatric Cardiology. In serving as the major referral center for a population of well-over 3 million people, our program offers the full spectrum of pediatric cardiac care. Pediatric cardiology fellows are active and integral members of the cardiac care team in all environments, including hands-on experience in our catheterization and electrophysiology labs, working routinely with our heart failure team in managing VAD and heart transplant patients, and spending significant time with our advanced imaging group to become experienced in echocardiography and develop additional skills in cardiac CT/MRI. Fellows also have ample elective and research time to pursue individual interests. We pride ourselves in helping fellows to become well-rounded and insightful pediatric cardiologists who aspire to excel in clinical medicine and research.  Above all, our goal is to equip fellows to succeed in any future career path they choose through clinical experience and personalized mentorship, while embracing the unique humanity that allows each of us to provide exemplary and compassionate care for our patients.
