The Boston Adult Congenital Heart (BACH) Service is a multi-institutional multi-departmental program designed to provide coordinated long-term care, education and innovation for patients with congenital heart disease and/or pulmonary hypertension as they reach and progress through adulthood. The clinical program includes outpatient and inpatient services with collaboration of multidisciplinary programs including pulmonary vascular disease, advanced heart failure, aortic conditions and connective tissue disorders, electrophysiology, exercise physiology, cardiac imaging, interventional cardiology, quality initiatives and cardio-obstetrics. The team sponsors various educational conferences and spearheads numerous research efforts for adults with congenital heart disease. Outpatient care is currently provided at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Boston Children's Hospital, as well as satellite sites in Waltham, Weymouth, Milford and Peabody, Massachusetts. The BACH team also supports clinics at Baystate Medical Center, Boston Medical Center and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. The program offers a senior ACHD fellowship, which is designed as a two-year curriculum with entry from both internal medicine cardiology and pediatric cardiology pathways and will meet the requirements set forth by ABIM, ABMS and ACGME to allow fellows to be Board-eligible for ACHD specialty certification.
