UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital Division of Pediatric Cardiology is seeking a Pediatric interventional cardiologist. Applicants should have formal 4th year fellowship training in Pediatric interventional cardiology and must be board certified/eligible in Pediatric Cardiology. Current trainees are welcome to apply.
The Pediatric Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital performs over 500+ cases annually including over 50 transcatheter pulmonary valve replacements each year. Our cath lab offers a full range on interventions including VSD closures, lymphatic interventions, premie PDA closures, aortic valve replacements for children, a full range of hybrid interventions and all standard transcatheter interventions. Interventions in adult congenital patients comprise about 25-20% of the volume at UCLA. The Congenital Catheterization Laboratory at UCLA is actively involved in many multicenter clinical trials and has an active translational research program dedicated to the development of new biodegradable stents.
The new faculty member will join the team as a junior interventional cardiologist working directly with the head of the cath lab, Dr Daniel Levi, to cover all the pediatric cases. The new hire will be responsible for performing interventional and diagnostic catheterizations. Participation in clinical, bench or translational research is strongly encouraged. Finally, because our center participates in in multiple research/collaborative databases as well as clinical research studies, a background in clinical research is valuable. The position will also include responsibilities for covering the general pediatric cardiology inpatient as well as participation in the outpatient clinic.

Annually, we perform over 300 cardiac surgeries (including hybrid procedures), over 650 cardiac catheterizations (including EP procedures), and over 9000 echocardiograms. We have a growing group of cardiologists covering all other subspecialties (EP, interventional, advanced imaging and fetal. We have a collaborative program with Children’s Hospital Orange County (CHOC) with joint conferences and we often collaborate on complex transcatheter interventions from patients from Kaiser and CHOC.
The position also includes a faculty appointment at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. In addition to interventional cardiology, applicants will also participate in general cardiology outpatient clinics, inpatient cardiology service, consults and occasional general cardiology call.
