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 2022.
The application timeline is as follows:
July 1, 2021: Programs start accepting applications
