    • Department of Pediatrics: Fellowship Training Program in Pediatric Cardiology Introduction Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship Training The training program in pediatric cardiology at the University Program Home Page of Iowa is an accredited program by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and the Sub-Board of Cardiology of the American Board of Pediatrics. Currently, the training program is partially supported by a National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute training grant. The purpose of the program is to provide skills necessary for a career in academic pediatric cardiology. The three-year program provides integrated clinical and research training. Fellows obtain training in clinical diagnosis and management while assigned to the inpatient and outpatient services. This will also include the management of patients undergoing surgery for congenital heart disease and cardiac transplantation. Fellows interpret noninvasive testing including electrocardiography (resting, exercise, Holter monitoring and event recordings), echocardiography (transthoracic, transesophageal, and fetal) and tilt table testing. Trainees will become familiar with applications of radiology to assess cardiac disease (chest radiography, nuclear medicine, magnetic resonance imaging, and electron beam computed tomography). Trainees will be assigned to the cardiac catheterization laboratory and participate in diagnostic, interventional, and electrophysiologic procedures. A fellow will, with faculty counseling, select an area in cardiovascular medicine that he or she would wish to pursue academically. The fellow selects a sponsor who will be responsible for the research education and will have protected research time to complete projects, write abstracts, present data at meetings and submit manuscripts. Fellows will provide teaching to residents, medical students and nurses. We feel such an integrated program is essential to the future success of a pediatric cardiologist at an academic center.
    • Department of Pediatrics: Fellowship Training Program in Pediatric Cardiology Eligibility and Application Procedure Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship Training Requirements for this program are U.S. citizenship (or Program Home Page permanent Visa), the completion of a three year pediatric residency program, and the necessary qualifications for a resident’s physician licensure in the State of Iowa.

    • Department of Pediatrics: Fellowship Training Program in Pediatric Cardiology Curriculum: Description of Specific Clinical Rotations Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship Training q Inpatient Service Program Home Page q Outpatient Service q Echocardiography q Cardiac Catheterization q Interventional q Electrophysiology q Surgery Inpatient Service The inpatient units are organized around the subspecialty services in order to facilitate patient care and improve teaching opportunities. The cardiology inpatient service is located on the second floor of the Colloton Pavilion. Patients younger than 28 days are cared for by Neonatologists in the nursery areas, which include a neonatal intensive care unit, an intermediate care nursery, and low risk nursery for the care of normal newborns. The Pediatric Intensive Care Unit is a multispecialty combined medical and surgical unit providing state-of-the-art respiratory, cardiovascular, and neurological monitoring and care. The PICU is designed to accommodate patients ranging in age from infancy to 16 years. Physician coverage is provided 24 hours a day by faculty from the Division of Critical Care Medicine Each morning the fellow makes rounds to assess status of all patients. The fellow interfaces between the inpatient cardiology ward team (residents and medical students), and the cardiology attending. With the attending faculty cardiologist, the fellow actively participates in work rounds, provides teaching (bedside and didactic) to the team and participates in consultative care given to patients on other services. Fellows acquire the necessary skills to manage patients with congenital and acquired cardiac diseases admitted acutely, electively or postoperatively. Phone consultation is also provided to
    • families and referring physicians. Night call is shared among all fellows, as well as two physician assistants. Generally night call, throughout the three years of training, is no more frequent than every fourth night and every fourth weekend. Yearly our service manages approximately 320 inpatient admissions with 900 inpatient days, 110 surgical admissions, and 250 inpatient consultations Outpatient Service The cardiology clinics are located in the Specialty Clinics of the Department of Pediatrics. We have well-equipped examination rooms (including specially equipped rooms for echocardiographic studies and electrophysiologic monitoring), a treatment room, and a conference room. The cardiology faculty provides diagnostic and therapeutic care for patients with congenital heart disease, acquired heart disease (e.g. cardiomyopathy, Kawasaki Disease, rheumatic heart disease, etc.), preoperative and postoperative cardiac surgery patients, including those requiring cardiac transplantation, and patients with hyperlipidemia. Pre- and post-procedure care is provided for patients requiring interventional catheterization. The adolescent/adult congenital heart disease clinic is jointly staffed by pediatric and medicine cardiologists and has been functioning as a joint venture since 1982. Support staff in the clinic include Physician Assistants, Advanced Nurse Practitioners and Registered Nurses. Clinics are held each weekday morning and are staffed by all faculty in cardiology. Monday: Dysrhythmia clinic (Drs. Atkins and Law); Tuesday: General Cardiology/Transplant/Interventional clinics (Drs. Morriss, Fagan and Edens); Wednesday: General Cardiology/Preventive Cardiology clinics (Dr. Lauer); Thursday: General Cardiology and Adolescent/Adult Congenital Heart Disease clinics (Drs. Mahoney, Scholz, Skorton, and Fox); Friday: General Cardiology (D. Knoedel, PA-C and inpatient attending). Diagnostic Consultative services from nutritionists, psychologists and social workers are readily available. During the last fiscal year, our division saw 2,400 outpatients at UIHC. The Child Health Specialty Clinics and Outreach Office cardiac programs provide local consultative services to community physicians and a means of identifying children
    • with cardiac problems that require referral to the Children’s Hospital of Iowa for further care. Practicing Iowa physicians refer children and youth to regional clinics located in their areas for diagnostic evaluation. The clinics also provide follow- up services for children with congenital and acquired cardiac problems. During the last fiscal year, we saw 1,150 patients at 9 community sites in Iowa. Echocardiography Fellows are assigned two to three months to the echocardiographic laboratory, perform all testing needed at night and on weekends, and interpret studies transmitted from remote sites in Iowa. Fellows participate in fetal, stress, and transesophageal studies with direct faculty guidance. The Division of Pediatric Cardiology interprets 3,000 studies annually. Each fellow will be involved in over 300 studies during their years of training. The cardiology service has four echocardiographic units and one portable system for use in outreach clinics, four reviewing stations, including two new digital workstations, and an area for receiving transmitted studies. Examination rooms are available in the Specialty Clinic when sedated studies with nurse monitoring are required. Cardiac Catheterization The cardiac catheterization laboratory is located within the Division of Pediatric Cardiology and is equipped with a state- of-the-art digital, biplane system. The spacious laboratory can accommodate needs for transesophageal echocardiography and anesthesia equipment. During the last fiscal year, 280 patients were admitted to this laboratory for diagnostic procedures prior to cardiac surgery or for transcatheter intervention. Each fellow easily participates in over 100 cases during their years of training. Catheterization data is provided yearly to Cardiac Care Consortium for purposes of monitoring quality of care. Our data compares extremely favorable to the greater than 40 other institutions also participating. Interventional In addition to hands-on-training for diagnostic cardiac catheterizations, each fellow will get exposure to the full
    • gamut of interventional procedures which constitute 50 to 60 percent of all cardiac catheterizations. These cutting edge procedures include: pulmonary, aortic and mitral valvuloplasties; pulmonary artery angioplasty and stent placement; patent ductus arteriosus occlusion; coarctation stent placement; atrial and ventricular septal defect occlusion. Currently there are three different atrial septal defect closure devices available for patients at the Children’s Hospital of Iowa Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory. We are also involved with several multicenter national trials involving new technologies for transcatheter treatment of congenital heart disease. Electrophysiology The electrophysiology lab performs both diagnostic and interventional electrophysiologic studies for the treatment of arrhythmias. More than 40 radiofrequency ablation procedures are performed each year, and several noncontact mapping systems have been incorporated into the electrophysiology lab to aid in treatment of the more complex arrhythmias. Pacemakers and implantable cardiac defibrillators are also implanted by the pediatric cardiologists in the cardiac catheterization laboratory. Surgery Fellows provide preoperative and postoperative care to patients with a wide variety of cardiac lesions. Drs. Douglas Behrendt and Christopher Caldarone provide excellent surgical care to our patients. They meet weekly with our division to discuss scheduled surgeries and interesting cases. Surgical data is provided yearly to Cardiac Care Consortium for purposes of monitoring quality of care. Our data compares extremely favorable to the greater than 40 other institutions also participating.
    • Department of Pediatrics: Fellowship Training Program in Pediatric Cardiology Curriculum: Research Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship Training During the first year, a fellow is expected, with faculty Program Home Page counseling, to select an area in cardiovascular medicine that he or she would wish to pursue academically. The fellow, with the guidance of the pediatric cardiology faculty, selects a sponsor who will be responsible for the research education of the fellow. A second year fellow has the opportunity to pursue more intense academic training. During this year independent research is undertaken under the direction of a sponsor and appropriate graduate level courses are taken. In addition to the independent research, the fellow may select courses in developmental biology, embryology, biostatistics, bioassay, experimental design, or any other course that would provide the necessary academic background to perform as an independent investigator. Also, during that year the fellow is given the opportunity to write abstracts, manuscripts, and grants. We feel such training is essential to the future success of a pediatric cardiologist at an academic center. During the third year, a fellow will present academic endeavors at national meetings, thus providing the necessary visibility for successful job placement upon completion of their training. Research interests of the division faculty include coronary risk factors in childhood, conduction and rhythm disturbances, developmental aspects of cardiac muscle and cardiac contractile proteins, cardiac embryology, echocardiography, and interventional cardiac catheterization.
    • Department of Pediatrics: Fellowship Training Program in Pediatric Cardiology Iowa Cardiovascular Center Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship Training The Iowa Cardiovascular Center was established in 1975 by Program Home Page the Dean of the College of Medicine under the direction of Dr. Francois Abboud. The purpose is to coordinate the cardiovascular programs of the College into a more cohesive unit to permit us to 1) utilize our cardiovascular resources optimally, 2) intensify, expand and integrate basic and clinical research programs in areas related to cardiovascular research, and 3) evaluate the role of new measures for prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease. Space totaling 18,000 square feet was constructed for the Center. The space consists of a fifth and sixth floor addition to the Medical Research Center Building which is the closet to the geographic center of the University Hospitals/Medical Laboratories/Eckstein Medical Research Building/Bowen Science Building complex. The fifth and sixth floors house investigator research laboratories, core research laboratories, administrative offices, seminar rooms, and the cardiovascular library and learning resource unit. The uniquely attractive feature of the Cardiovascular Center programs at Iowa is the close working relationship and cooperation between members of the basic science departments and the members of the clinical departments, particularly the Departments of Medicine, Neurology, Pediatrics and Surgery. Another important element in the success of this Cardiovascular Center has been the availability of a critical mass of basic scientists and clinical investigators who have full-time faculty appointments with tenure at this university. This represents a major commitment of university and state resources to cardiovascular programs, which have been a significant element in its stability and success. There are several major interdisciplinary programs currently funded within the Cardiovascular Center and/or form the core of research and training programs utilized by postdoctoral trainees in cardiovascular diseases. These include a Program Project Grant on Integrated Neurovascular Control, a Program
    • Project Grant on Fatty Acids, Lipoproteins and Lipid Oxidation, a SCOR on the Molecular Genetics of Hypertension, a SCOR in Occupational and Immunologic Lung Disease, a SCOR in Congenital Heart Disease, a Program Project Grant on Cerebral Blood Vessels, a SCOR in Cystic Fibrosis, a Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Research and Development Program, Program Project Grant on Gene Therapy for Cystic Fibrosis Lung Disease, a Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Gene Therapy Center, a Training Center in Lipid Disorders, a Clinical Trial and Observational Study of the Women’s Health Initiative-West, a Center for Research on Older Rural Populations, a Trial of ORG-10172 in Stroke, and a Biostatistics Core Facility. In addition, there is our Cardiovascular Interdisciplinary Research Fellowship, Pulmonary Training Program, Training Program in Hemostasis and Thrombosis, and an Institutional Pediatric Cardiology Training Grant that provide postdoctoral fellowships to M.D. and Ph.D. fellows.
    • Department of Pediatrics: Fellowship Training Program in Pediatric Cardiology Conferences/Meetings Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship Training Each week a joint pediatric cardiology and cardiovascular Program Home Page surgery is held to discuss patients to be operated within the ensuing week or interesting cases that faculty wish to hear other’s opinions on management. Complex inpatient cases are often discussed. Faculty from the Division of Critical Care Medicine, nurses, and medical students are in attendance. Fellows, with faculty supervision, organize the discussions for a monthly journal club. Twice monthly, lectures felt to be part of a core curriculum for training, are presented by faculty and staff within the division of cardiology, other divisions in Pediatrics and other departments of the College of Medicine. A weekly conference is held to discuss interesting patients who recently underwent diagnostic, interventional or electrophysiologic testing. Travel to national meetings is provided yearly to each trainee. Fellows have always been encouraged to submit their research findings to Young Investigator competitions of the Academy of Pediatrics, American College of Cardiology or Society for Pediatric Research during their second and third years of training. Previous trainees have successfully competed in these programs.
