Pediatric Cardiology

The Division of Pediatric Cardiology in the Department of Pediatrics at Indiana University School of Medicine is a large interdisciplinary congenital heart specialty team that provides care to the children of the state of Indiana and the Midwest and includes an international program.

Cardiovascular care starts with the fetus through diagnosis and continues through intervention and lifelong care for congenital heart defects extending through adulthood.  Clinical care for the patients is provided by pediatric cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, cardiovascular critical care specialists, cardiovascular pediatric anesthesiologists, neonatologists with expertise in congenital heart abnormalities, adult congenital heart cardiologists, and many other pediatric specialists. These specialists treat a variety of diseases and conditions, including congenital heart disease, acquired heart disease, Kawasaki disease, rheumatic fever, arrhythmias, heart murmurs, chest pain, syncope, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, heart failure and heart transplantation.

In addition to the clinical care programs, the Division of Pediatric Cardiology houses a Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship training program and participates in a vibrant translational research program through the IU School of Medicine’s Herman B Wells Center for Pediatric Research, located in Indianapolis, Indiana.  This center offers exceptional opportunities for trainees and includes collaboration among basic scientists, translational scientists, and physicians.

Joyce Hubbard Endowment and Internship Program

The Joyce Hubbard Endowment and internship program provides an excellent opportunity to provide financial support for the development of pediatric cardiology educational programs and internships at Riley Hospital. The internships are open to collegiate and graduate students who express interest in exploring cardiology as a possible career (research or clinical) and for medical students who wish to gain further knowledge to work in the field of pediatric cardiology.

The family of Joyce Hubbard, MD, has established this Endowment in her name to provide a long term memory and recognition of Dr. Hubbard’s work and contributions to her patients and colleagues at Riley Hospital.

Interns will learn and serve through first-hand participation at Riley Hospital for Children within the Heart Center clinical floor. The program is intended to provide knowledge, tools, skills and experiences that an intern will readily apply to future challenges and professional pursuits and to specifically garner interest and knowledge in the field of cardiology. These interns will have the opportunity to work on projects related to discovering and learning about safe and effective medical treatments for children, understanding devices or therapies, and/or examining how children grow, learn and develop. We welcome all applicants who demonstrate academic excellence and display a continued commitment to public service, but are specifically looking for applicants with an interest or skills in the areas of: medicine, biology, research, chemistry or science.

Application open December 1st - February 1st, with decisions made in March for a summer internship. For additional questions, please contact Anne Farrell, MD.
