The University of Michigan offers an ACGME approved Congenital Cardiac Surgery Fellowship. This fellowship will transition to a 2-year (24 month) program beginning in the Summer of 2023. All rotations are performed at the C. S. Mott Children’s Hospital. Applications will be accepted every other year for a two-year ODD start date. The graduates are eligible for the American Board of Thoracic Surgery Congenital Cardiac Surgery certification process.
The fellowship is two years in duration and follows completion of either an integrated cardiothoracic surgery residency a 4+3 cardiothoracic program, or a cardiothoracic surgery fellowship (2 or 3 years). The residency encompasses surgical training for congenital cardiac surgery along with the full spectrum of perioperative care. The Section of Pediatric Cardiac Surgery at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, has developed a regional, national and international reputation of excellence, as well as wide referral practice in pediatric cardiovascular surgery. A full scope of congenital heart disease care is offered at our center including high risk neonatal surgery, adult congenital heart surgery, hybrid procedures, heart transplantation, and mechanical assist devices.
Our center performs approximately 900-1,000 cardiac cases of which approximately 600 are cardiopulmonary bypass cases. Our surgical program is known for success in dealing with complex conditions such as staged palliation for single ventricle lesions, complex forms of transposition and other STAT 4 and 5 surgical procedures.
Pediatric Cardiology enjoys a very close working relationship with Pediatric Cardiac Surgery through the University of Michigan Congenital Heart Center, where cardiology and surgical faculty and staff together participate in clinical case conferences, quality improvement initiatives, and research endeavors.
