Senior Clinical Fellowship Opportunities

Opportunities offered include our:

  • Advanced Imaging Fellowship. This program offers training in all advanced modalities including 3D echocardiography, transesophageal echocardiography, strain imaging, fetal cardiology, cardiac MRI and cardiac CT.
  • Electrophysiology Fellowship. Offered to both internal and external applicants, this includes all aspects of pediatric electrophysiology training including inpatient consultation, outpatient clinics, pacemaker and defibrillator placement and revision, invasive electrophysiology including zero-radiation studies with Carto mapping, and devices programming and management. Clinical and academic experiences are based at Children’s National with supplemental invasive experience available with our partners at Washington Hospital Center.
  • Cardiac Critical Care Fellowship. This program offers advanced training in cardiac critical care for internal and external applicants.  Many fellows also choose to pursue formal Critical Care Medicine fellowships after completing training.

Advanced degrees and certificates may be pursued through our affiliation with the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. Some of our fellows have pursued Master of Public Health degrees at the Milken Institute School of Public Health and coursework as a part of their academic experience. Additionally, George Washington is home to the Master Teacher Leadership Development Program, a year-long certificate program for medical educators.

Children’s National also offers distinct two-week courses in Global Health, Medical Education and Health Policy for fellows interested in those disciplines.

Advanced Cardiac Imaging Fellowship

We are looking to select a fellow that has defined goals and ambitions that we can develop and advance to assure a successful career.

We consider this fellowship the start of a career with our application process reflecting this ideal. Materials should be sent to the program director, Dr. Mary Donofrio by 8/1/25.
