The personal statement should highlight your career path and professional interest. We want to know how you think a fourth year fellowship fits into your academic training and how you anticipate it will help you in your academic career. Materials should be sent to the director of our Advanced Imaging Fellowship, Mary Donofrio, M.D.. Materials should be submitted by August 1 with interviews occurring August – October.

Our Advanced Imaging Fellowship offers training in all advanced modalities including 3D echocardiography, transesophageal echocardiography, strain imaging, fetal cardiology, cardiac MRI, and cardiac CT. Our Electrophysiology Fellowship is offered to both internal and external applicants and 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. In addition to our Cardiac Critical Care Fellowship, many fellows also choose to pursue formal Critical Care Medicine fellowships after completing training in cardiology. Children’s National is also proud to be one of four American Heart Association Centers of Excellence with a $4 million grant including three funded rheumatic heart disease fellowship positions.
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’s of Public Health degrees at the Milken Institute School of Public Health and coursework in as a part of their academic experience. Additionally, GW 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.
