The University of Utah Advanced Pediatric Cardiac Imaging fellowship is a one-year program offering advanced training in non-invasive pediatric cardiac imaging. Training encompasses transthoracic, fetal, and transesophageal echocardiography, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and computed tomography (CT). The senior fellow learns in all modalities and can emphasize areas of clinical and/or academic interest.
Clinical Experience & Teaching
Most of the clinical experience and teaching occurs at Primary Children's Hospital that includes a cardiac intensive care unit with 16 beds, a neonatal intensive care unit with 52 beds, and a cardiac step-down unit of 36 beds. All beds are linked to telemetry monitoring. Patients are also seen at the University of Utah Health's Neonatal ICU and occasionally in the Well Baby Nursery.
Outpatient services are provided to our cardiology population at Primary Children's Hospital and at outreach facilities throughout the states of Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and Alaska.
Fellows at Primary Children's Hospital and the University of Utah Health are exposed to a patient population from a large geographical area. Nearly all pediatric patients with congenital and acquired cardiac defects and the majority of adults with congenital heart disease are managed at our center.
The cardiology team consists of 25 full-time and one part time pediatric cardiologist. We service 14 outpatient locations and 13 hospitals throughout the Mountain West:
- Primary Children's Hospital (Salt Lake City, UT)
- John's Medical Center (Jackson, WY)
- Logan Regional Medical Center (Logan, UT)
- McKay Dee Medical Center (Ogden, UT)
- Intermountain Medical Center (Salt Lake City, UT)
- Primary Children's Riverton Outpatient Services - Clinic (Riverton, UT)
- Riverton Hospital - Inpatient and ER Consults (Riverton, UT)

- Dixie Regional Medical Center (St. George, UT)
- University of Utah Hospital (Salt Lake City, UT)
- Alaska Heart Institute (Anchorage, AK)
- Alaska Children’s Heart Center (Anchorage, AK)
Care for the pediatric cardiology patients begins prenatally with a busy fetal cardiology program and continues throughout the life of the child with congenital heart disease culminating with our services provided by the adult congenital heart disease team.
The Division of Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship at the University of Utah provides full and comprehensive services for complex congenital and acquired heart disease including outpatient and inpatient evaluation and management, affiliation with a strong pediatric cardiothoracic surgery, interventional and diagnostic catheterization, cardiac transplantation, ventricular assist device and ECMO management, extensive non-invasive diagnostic imaging, and invasive and noninvasive electrophysiology. We treat more than 11,000 patients each year and have gained national recognition for our comprehensive care.
