The pediatric heart failure, MCS and transplant team is involved in multiple clinical trials, outcomes and basic science research.

The transplant program at Children’s Medical Center, Dallas began in 1988 and over 350 transplants have been undertaken since then. The mechanical circulatory support program began in 2006 with over 130 device implants since then.

The central position of Dallas with a major hub airport means travel is easy both nationally and internationally.

We would welcome applications from physicians interested in a career in heart function and its management and offer a comprehensive training program with established clinicians in the field.
