- ACGME Cardiovascular Disease Program Requirements 2020
- IV.C.4. Fellows must participate in training using simulation. (Detail)
Fellows displayed technical and procedural improvement at diagnostic coronary angiography in a short period of time and in a safe, patient free environment. In this study, a computer-based simulator was successfully incorporated into a first year cardiovascular fellowship curriculum and represents a contemporary means to provide the fellow increased procedural training without added risk to the patient.

Fellows showed significant increase in their confidence in all specific knowledge and skills related to the learning objectives. Fellows rated hands-on learning experiences and simulation-based exercises most highly. Journal Article: A Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship Boot Camp improves trainee confidence.
