Biographical / historical:

The Division of Pediatric Cardiology, part of the Duke Pediatric and Congenital Heart Center, at Duke University Medical Center is a primary provider of inpatient and outpatient cardiovascular diagnostic and treatment services in the southeastern United States. Pediatric Cardiology offers a comprehensive spectrum of clinical services to treat cardiovascular diseases that may affect the fetus, infant, child, adolescent, or young adult.
Pediatric Cardiology's basic research programs are directed at the development of absorbable intravascular stents, detection and management post-bypass syndrome after heart surgery, the control of cardiac cytosolic calcium concentration and the regulation of the sensitivity of cardiac myofilaments to calcium, as well as basic investigations related to cellular electrophysiology. Their research programs also include a number of clinical trials conducted through the NIH, foundations, and industry for children with heart disease.
Pediatric Cardiology offers a three-year fellowship program to prepare individuals for a career in academic pediatric cardiology, or in the private practice of pediatric cardiology. The three-year program includes 24 months of clinical training and 12 months of research training.
Patient advocacy is important to Pediatric Cardiology's faculty and practitioners. They lobby at the local, state, and federal levels for children's heart programs, as well as through a number of professional societies for a variety of issues related to pediatric heart disease.
