Cardiology Fellowship

Welcome From the Fellowship Program Director

Derek Hoyme, MD, Assistant Professor and Fellowship Director

Welcome to the University of Wisconsin Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship program! Our ACGME-accredited program trains clinical and academic leaders in the care of infants, children, adolescents and adults with congenital heart disease. Over the three years of your fellowship, you’ll receive the clinical experience necessary to care for all types of medical and surgical cardiac pathologies in an environment committed to education. You’ll also develop strong, effective interpersonal skills, so you can lead a multidisciplinary care team and interact effectively with patients and families from diverse backgrounds. To prepare you for a career in academic medicine, you’ll also receive comprehensive training in clinical, translational, basic science and/or educational research—and have access to investigators in our division, our department and across the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. In addition, we provide you with an individualized training and mentoring plan supported by robust educational conferences. Finally, you’ll work as part of a dynamic team in a vibrant city that is frequently ranked among the very best places to live in the nation. Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to meeting you!
