Welcome to Stanford’s Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD) Fellowship Program

The Adult Congenital Heart Program at Stanford offers a two-year multidisciplinary advanced fellowship in adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) that is ACGME accredited. At the end of the program, graduating fellows will be eligible for certification in Adult Congenital Heart Disease by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM). The ACHD fellowship is administered through the Divisions of Cardiovascular Medicine and Pediatric Cardiology at the Stanford University School of Medicine and the Adult Congenital Heart Program at Stanford, a Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital (LPCH) and Stanford Healthcare collaboration. This fellowship is designed to train leaders in the field of ACHD. The program provides advanced training in the field of ACHD, high risk pregnancy, and exposure to pulmonary hypertension, cardiac imaging, electrophysiology, diagnostic and interventional catheterization, advanced heart failure and transplantation, and cardiac surgery in the adult patient with congenital heart disease. Candidates must have completed general adult or pediatric cardiology fellowships at an ACGME-accredited program.
