Cardiology

BCRP junior residents spend one month as part of the inpatient cardiology team at Boston Children's Hospital. The service is composed of 3 primary residents, two first or second year cardiology fellows, two cardiology attendings, two nurse practitioners, up to 3 medical students and an administrative medical teams associate. Each resident has primary responsibility for the evaluation and management of patients with a wide range of congenital and acquired pediatric heart diseases, under the supervision of the cardiology attendings and fellows. Each resident rotating primarily on the cardiology service spends five days in the outpatient clinic evaluating common and uncommon problems encountered in an academic cardiology practice. Daily didactic sessions presented by faculty cardiologists and geared exclusively to residents and medical students focus on core topics in pediatric cardiology from EKG reading and understanding cardiac catheterization data to care of patients with complex congenital heart disease.
