Consensus Statement from the PCICS Subcommittee of Pediatric Cardiac Critical Care Training Program Directors

Thank you for your interest in advanced training in pediatric cardiac critical care. The ACGME does not currently accredit this training pathway, however, a national standard for training has been created and these advanced fellowships are accepted as the standard of care for new pediatric cardiac intensivists.

The programs in the US and Canada have collaborated to create a common application and application cycle for positions starting July 2023. Prior to accessing the form, we ask that you please complete the registration portal questionnaire found here. You will then be given a link directly to the application.
