Training pediatric residents to evaluate congenital heart disease in the current era.


Journal Article (Review)

Working with young pediatricians to create an exciting educational environment in which to learn cardiology remains a challenge for all of us. Numerous forces impact our efforts, making the process of training residents to evaluate and treat congenital heart disease in the current era a dynamic and, at times, difficult endeavor. This article considers the changes that have occurred in the medical school graduate who chooses pediatrics and subsequently pediatric cardiology as a career; explores the changes in the graduate medical training guidelines, requirements, and restrictions that have been put into place within the last several years; and discusses the seemingly constant advances in scientific understanding and technology that shape our field and move us forward as a discipline.
