The Heart Institute is one of the core initiatives at Rady Children’s and is composed of 30 physicians and supported by roughly 100 staff. The program provides all levels of congenital heart care ranging from the fetus to the adult including transplant, at 2 main sites that include Rady Children’s Hospital and the University of California at San Diego. The program has a fully staffed and devoted pediatric cardiac intensive care unit/inpatient unit that provides 24/7 in-house attending level coverage. In 2017 the program was ranked by U.S. News and World Report in the top 20 and performed a total of 500 operations at Rady Children’s with 300 of those being STS index cases. The congenital heart surgeon’s support another 50 to 100 adult congenital operations performed at UCSD university hospital with the adult team. The ideal candidate will be at the beginning of their career but candidates with special skills in congenital heart failure/transplant/mechanical assist, adult congenital, or research will be considered.
