The Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery also offers a one-year ACGME accredited fellowship program in Congenital Cardiac Surgery. This program is directed by David Campbell, MD, Professor of Surgery, and is housed primarily at the Heart Institute within the Children’s Hospital Colorado. This clinical fellowship program is typically open to candidates who have completed a general thoracic surgery residency program. Upon completion of the clinical fellowship in Congenital Cardiac Surgery, the fellow should be fully capable of functioning as an independent pediatric cardiovascular-thoracic surgeon.
