  • 1. Duke University Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship Program Division Chiefs Jennifer S. Li, M.D. (Chief, Cardiovascular Research) (Chief, Clinical Research) John F. Rhodes, Jr., M.D. (Chief, Clinical Cardiology) Program Training Director Stephanie Burns Wechsler, M.D. We are a multidisciplinary center that offers expert diagnosis, treatment and management of all types of cardiovascular disorders in children. PROGRAM OVERVIEW Program Leaders The Pediatric Cardiology Program at Duke University Medical Center is led by Doctor Jennifer Li and Doctor John Rhodes. Dr. Li directs our Cardiovascular Research Program. Dr. Rhodes directs our Clinical Cardiology Program. Under their leadership, our program has been strengthened by the expansion of our clinical and research programs and the addition of new faculty. The faculty is expert in all the areas of pediatric cardiology. This expertise allows us to offer advanced training in interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, non-invasive imaging, and clinical research. Clinical Training The training takes advantage of our large diverse population of patients with congenital and acquired cardiac disease that gives our fellows a broad exposure to cardiac catheterization procedures, electrophysiology, cardiac transplantation, echocardiography, cardiac MRI, cardiovascular genetics, exercise physiology, in-patient and out-patient care, and pre- and post- operative care of patients. The training program, also, takes advantage of the many clinical and basic research opportunities available at Duke. Fellows can obtain graduate degrees in the quantitative sciences. Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Unit The Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (PCICU) opened January 2009. The PCICU is devoted to the pre-operative and post-operative care of pediatric cardiovascular patients and selected older patients with congenital cardiac defects. Research Opportunities Our fellows have the opportunity to participate in NIH and industry supported clinical trials and studies. They may perform basic research in the many cardiovascular research laboratories at Duke University Medical Center. Our fellows present their results at national meetings and publish first-authored publications describing and discussing their results.
  • 2. Pediatric Heart Network We are a Center in the NHLBI-funded Pediatric Heart Network (PHN). This membership provides our fellows the opportunity to participate in all of the PHN trials and studies. The subjects include neonates, infants, children, adolescents, and young adults. Bowman Gray School of Medicine and East Carolina University are our partners in the North Carolina Consortium since 2005. We share in the care of patients in these trials. Our fellows may attend the twice yearly PHN meetings in Boston and Washington to meet leaders in Pediatric Cardiology. T32 Training Grant We have a NHLBI-funded T-32 Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship Program. Through this mechanism, our fellows have the opportunity to train in basic research laboratories, for example studying cardiac embryology and vasculoneogenesis. Fellows also can obtain graduate degrees in the quantitative sciences, including Master in Health Sciences in Clinical Research, granted by the Duke School of Medicine, and Master in Biostatistics and Ph.D. in Epidemiology, granted by the School of Public Health, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
