In brief: Pediatric card train

Pediatric cardiologist trains first as a pediatrician and is board certified.
A three year fellowship follows three years of pediatric residency. These fellowships are located mostly at children's hospitals. Training involves all aspect of the care of children and young adults with heart disease. 0.8 in 100 infants are born with some form of congenital heart disease. They are not surgeons.
