Fellowship Alumni

The Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship Program at the University of Virginia will give you all the tools you need to move on to the next step in your career. We have placed former fellows in many private practices, public health, professorships and more.

Our alumni have gone on to pursue diverse career paths, from renowned academic institutions to clinical practice settings and leadership roles. They have excelled in various subspecialties and are making a significant impact in pediatric cardiology. We celebrate the achievements of our alumni who continue to advance the field, improve patient care, and inspire future generations of pediatric cardiologists.

If you would like to hear first-hand from a former fellow, we will get you in touch with one in your area. Our fellows come from all over and head out to places far and wide when their fellowship has ended.
