Selection & Application

Selection

Fellows are selected to the program on the basis of past academic performance and potential for success in the field of pediatric cardiology. Prior clinical, teaching, research and administrative interests and experience are reviewed in conjunction with letters of recommendation by their residency director and faculty mentors. An interview with the Program Director, attending staff and current fellows is arranged for qualified applicants. This provides the applicant with an opportunity to view our clinical facilities, ask questions about our educational opportunities and philosophies, and express their goals and objectives for the training period and their careers. The program adheres to the Equal Opportunity Employer (EOE) / Affirmative Action (AA) policy of the NYU Langone Medical Center.
