e-Teaching in pediatric cardiology: A paradigm shift

By Sunita Maheshwari, Bistra Zheleva, Veeralakshmi Rajasekhar, Bipin Batra

Congenital heart anomalies are the most common major birth defect in the world, yet a large number of newborns with a heart defect live in regions where medical care is inadequate or unavailable. Increasing access to appropriate, quality pediatric cardiac care is a health care priority that many low- and middle-income countries face today.

In India, few nationally accredited training centers for pediatric cardiology exist. Practitioners in India have identified significant discrepancies in the learning experience for pediatric cardiology and cardiology fellows across academic institutions, particularly in terms of receiving structured and standardized education of theory and critical thinking.
