Eligibility Criteria for Certification in Pediatric Cardiology

The American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) has established a procedure for certification in pediatric cardiology. In addition to the specific admission requirements listed below, General Eligibility Criteria for all ABP Subspecialties must be fulfilled to be eligible for certification.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Three years of full-time, broad based fellowship training in pediatric cardiology are required to be completed in a program accredited for training in pediatric cardiology by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) in the United States or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

Combined absences/leaves in excess of 3 months during the 3 years of training, whether for vacation, parental leave, illness, and so forth, must be made up. If the program director believes that combined absences/leaves that exceed 3 months are justified, a letter of explanation should be sent by the director for review by the Credentials Committee. Part-time training may be completed over no more than 6 years.

The following must be accomplished in order to become certified in the subspecialty:

  • A Verification of Competence Form must be completed by the program director(s) verifying satisfactory completion of the required training, evaluating clinical competence including professionalism, and providing evidence of scholarly activity/research.
  • The fellow must meet the criteria stated in the "Principles Regarding the Assessment of Scholarly Activity."
  • The fellow must pass the subspecialty certifying examination.

It should be noted that these criteria and conditions are subject to change without notice. All applicants are advised to contact the ABP to ascertain whether the information they have is current.
