This chapter explores the unique challenges of selecting, training and mentoring those who will become the next generation of pediatric cardiac care professionals. In addition to the published literature on selection, training and mentoring, we provide new data from the Congenital Heart Surgeons Society and the European Association for Congenital Heart Surgery elucidating the elements deemed most important to the training and professional development of healthcare providers devoted to pediatric cardiac care.
