Each fellow training in the Division of Cardiology will have substantial opportunities to engage in research. Numerous research opportunities exist within and beyond the cardiology faculty. Research training is individualized towards a goal of meeting yet exceeding the requirements for taking the subboard of pediatric cardiology certification examination.  An individualized learning plan with a mentor is developed early in the first year then facilitated and reviewed periodically to ensure achievement. Tools and personnel are available within the Cardiology Division, Department of Pediatrics, and College of Medicine to facilitate and support fellows’ research.

Under the American Board of Pediatrics guidelines, a Scholarship Oversight Committee will approve the fellow's scholarly project and then monitor progress achievement.
