Children’s HeartLink Offers a New Fellowship



For a second year, we are offering the Children’s HeartLink Fellowship in Pediatric Cardiac Services for professionals from low- and middle-income countries. Three medical professionals will be selected for a two-year training program in three subspecialty tracks: pediatric cardiology, pediatric cardiac surgery and pediatric cardiac intensive care.

This fellowship was created through Children’s HeartLink’s partnerships with two of our Centers of Excellence – Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences in Kochi, India, and Institut Jantung Negara in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The training time will be split evenly between Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences and Institut Jantung Negara.

The deadline is October 31, 2019, and the expected start date is July 2020. Please read here for more information. The application can be found here.
