What is the CHiP Network?

The CHIP Network, the Congenital Heart Professionals Network, is designed to provide a single global list of all CHD-interested professionals in order to:

  • Connect pediatric and adult CHD-interested professionals to events, conferences, research opportunities and employment
  • Increase education and provider awareness of new developments in the field
  • Bring the pediatric and adult congenital heart communities into closer contact
  • Offer a communication tool for critical issues

Who Should Participate?

The CHIP Network is all inclusive and is comprised of everyone who considers themselves a congenital heart professional or administrator, including:

  • Pediatric cardiologists.
  • ACHD cardiologists.
  • RNs and APNs.
  • Cardiac surgeons.
  • Cardiac care associates.
  • Trainees/fellows.
  • Administrators.
  • Social workers.
  • Psychologists and mental health professionals.
  • Researchers/scientists.
  • Transition medicine specialists
  • Intensivists.
  • Anesthetists.
  • Industry representatives.

How It Works

The CHIP Network helps partner organizations reach selected members of the congenital heart community. These messages will be approved by the management committee and will be sent out by the Network itself, not by the partner organizations. No organization or individual will have a copy of the Network’s email addresses.
