Physicians currently enrolled in postgraduate training programs, as well as those who have completed training, are eligible to apply. Trainees will have the opportunity to study specimens from a collection of over 700 hearts with congenital malformations, and to correlate clinical data with the defects, including history, phonograms, vectorcardiograms and electrocardiograms, roentgenograms, angiograms, operative notes, and autopsy reports. The trainees also will be encouraged to attend conferences and rounds in the departments of pediatrics, medicine, surgery, radiology, and pathology, and to discuss cases at the weekly Pediatric Cardiology-Pathology Conference.A per diem allowance is offered to physicians currently enrolled in a residency or fellowship training program.
