Pediatric Cardiology

Gain experience evaluating and caring for pediatric patients with congenital heart disease and new-onset cardiac symptoms and abnormalities.

This primarily outpatient experience will help you better understand congenital heart disease in children so you can manage it in adults.

Training in a pediatric outpatient practice associated with Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, you’ll:

  • see patients during routine follow-up visits
  • review ECGs, echocardiograms and other tests
  • discuss your patients with an attending physician

You’ll also care for pediatric patients with new cardiac symptoms unrelated to congenital heart disease, such as palpitations and shortness of breath.

If interested, you may also train in a pediatric cardiac catheterization laboratory.

During your didactics, faculty in UB’s pediatric Division of Cardiology will deliver lectures on congenital heart disease in adults, complementing this rotation.

We also invite you to attend a weekly multidisciplinary congenital heart disease conference at Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo.
