Why the Heart Institute at Cincinnati Children's?
Cincinnati Children’s and Kentucky Children’s Hospital's Joint Pediatric and Congenital Heart Program is ranked among the top 10 programs in the nation for cardiology and heart surgery by U.S. News & World Report in the 2023-24 list of Best Children’s Hospitals
The Heart Institute is one of the largest pediatric and congenital cardiology programs in the nation with more than 135 world-renowned physicians, researchers and fellows, which currently includes 7 cardiothoracic surgery faculty, approximately 60 pediatric cardiologists and 10 basic science research faculty, in addition to several jointly appointed faculty, as well as adjunct and staff positions.
As a result of our research performance, we consistently rank as one of the top three pediatric departments in the country for extramural support. In 2022 Cincinnati Children’s Hospital set a new all-time record, totaling more than $283 million dollars awarded from extramural grants and contracts.
Cardiology researchers published over 400 papers in FY22 and generated more than $14M in external research revenue. In FY22, a total of 88 active grants by faculty, fellows and staff generated over $9.2M in direct revenue and almost $3.2M in indirect revenue. The research structure allows fellows to successfully enter the national stage not only by successful publication of their research but also by presenting at local, regional and national meetings.
Fellowship program director, Ivan Wilmot, MD, and associate program director, Eunice Hahn, MD, provide oversight and leadership of the administrative, clinical and scholarly aspects of the training program and are dedicated to providing a rewarding and challenging experience to every fellow who joins our team.
