Cardiac Simulation

The Cardiovascular Disease fellowship program provides on-site cardiac simulation opportunities to all fellows. 

  • ACGME Cardiovascular Disease Program Requirements 2020
    • IV.C.4. Fellows must participate in training using simulation. (Detail)

Fellows displayed technical and procedural improvement at diagnostic coronary angiography in a short period of time and in a safe, patient free environment. In this study, a computer-based simulator was successfully incorporated into a first year cardiovascular fellowship curriculum and represents a contemporary means to provide the fellow increased procedural training without added risk to the patient.  Journal Article: Diagnostic coronary angiography: initial results of a simulation program.

Fellows showed significant increase in their confidence in all specific knowledge and skills related to the learning objectives. Fellows rated hands-on learning experiences and simulation-based exercises most highly.  Journal Article: A Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship Boot Camp improves trainee confidence.
