The Division of Pediatric Critical Care at Indiana University School of Medicine offers a one year non-ACGME accredited Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Fellowship to physicians 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.
Based at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health, fellows receive core training in pediatric critical care, including cardiac intensive care and anesthesia as well as invasive and noninvasive pediatric cardiology.
More than 400 patients annually undergo pediatric cardiac surgery at Riley Hospital, along with hundreds of other patients who undergo cardiac catheterization or require non-surgical medical care for critical cardiac disease. These patients are cared for in the 24-bed CVICU. This large and diverse patient population offers fellows excellent opportunities for gaining the expertise necessary to care for complex patients and build effective collaborative treatment in partnership with the numerous providers who participate in the care of a patient with critical cardiac disease.
Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care faculty consists of a pediatric cardiac intensivists, pediatric cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, neonatologists, PICU fellows, nurse practitioners, respiratory therapists, pharmacologists, nutritionists, and cardiac ICU nurses.
