CHIP sends a monthly congenital heart journal watch, educational videos, featured science, congenital heart and pediatric cardiac news, upcoming events, and other information of interest to professionals working in the following fields.
- Pediatric Cardiology
- Congenital Heart and Pediatric Electrophysiology
- Congenital Heart Interventions
- Congenital Heart Surgery

HOW IT WORKS
The CHiP Network Corporation is a tax-exempt organization based in the USA. With the opening of its new website, CHiP will begin a (free) subscription drive to enroll thousands more congenital heart and pediatric cardiac professionals to participate in the educational, informational, and communications services it offers.
CHiP has also begun a social media campaign to greatly increase the accessibility and visibility of its messages and educational resources and to offer additional support to our subscription drive.
CHIP works in close collaboration with the Adult Congenital Heart Disease Learning Center (launched in 2013 in association with the International Society for Adult Congenital Heart Disease) and the Pediatric Cardiac Learning Center, both located at www.heartuniversity.org. These two learning centers are sponsored by Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.
