Thank you for your interest in the Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine. Our training program is held in high esteem and consistently ranks among the very best in the nation. Fellows come to us from throughout the United States and from around the world to live and train in the wonderfully diverse and vibrant city of Houston. We welcome your application and look forward to meeting with those who appear to be a good fit for our program. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us using the e-mail addresses or phone number listed below.

Applicants must successfully complete a pediatric residency training program and be eligible for board certification by the American Board of Pediatrics. This is a prerequisite to sit for certification by the ABP’s Sub-Board of Pediatric Cardiology.

Application Process

The Baylor Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship participates in the Electronic Residency Application Service.

Applications will be accepted from July 15 through early August during the third year of the applicant's pediatric residency (12 months prior to the anticipated start date). Interviews are conducted from August to October of that same academic year. The Section of Pediatric Cardiology is a participant in the National Residency Matching Program and will follow the schedule of dates published by the NRMP, which includes the date of release for match results.

It is important that all application materials, including transcripts and letters of recommendation, be received in a timely manner to allow for complete review of the application prior to issuing an invitation to interview.

Interview Process

The interview day will include an introduction to the Texas Medical Center (the largest medical center in the world) and Pediatric Cardiology faculty and fellows. Applicants are asked to arrive one day prior to their scheduled interview to attend dinner with faculty and fellows.

Interviews for all positions are held at Texas Children’s Hospital, 19th floor, West Tower.

Required Documents

Application information and resources are provided for fellowship applicants interested in applying for training positions at U.S. fellowship training programs at the ERAS for Fellowship Applicants website.

ERAS is a service of the Association of American Medical Colleges and was created to enhance transition to fellowship by reducing the amount of time spent on the application process. ERAS electronically transmits a standardized application, letters of recommendation, transcripts and other supporting credentials from applicants and designated Dean's offices to program directors.

All applications will be reviewed and considered by the recruitment committee only after the ERAS application has been finalized by the applicant and forwarded to Baylor Pediatric Cardiology by ERAS.

Advanced Training Opportunities

The Section of Pediatric Cardiology also offers advanced training in Advanced Imaging, Adult Congenital Heart Disease, Electrophysiology, Heart Failure, Cardiomyopathy and Transplant, Cardiac Critical Care, and Interventional Cardiology. Applications will be accepted from July 1 through Sept. 30 during the third year of the applicant's Pediatric Cardiology fellowship. Interview dates vary by subspecialty but are typically conducted August to early November of that same academic year.
