Program Goals

Our ACGME-accredited two-year fellowship specifically aims to:

  • Enhance the expertise of already excellent clinicians in the care of hospitalized children across the spectrum of medical acuity and complexity in both tertiary and community settings.
  • Promote the practice of evidence-based, high-value, patient- and family-centered care.
  • Cultivate an environment in which diversity, inclusion and equity are valued and prioritized.
  • Provide a flexible curriculum that allows fellows to tailor their training and experiences to their clinical and academic goals and interests.
  • Hone fellows’ skills as medical educators and multidisciplinary team leaders.
  • Foster the development of fellows as quality improvement and patient safety champions through formal training and leadership experience.
  • Support and mentor the development of fellows’ individual scholarship interests, so that they are well-positioned for success as academic faculty members post-graduation.

Treatment and care are coordinated by an in-house pediatrician and a staff of experienced pediatric nurses. This site contains a 15-bed combined pediatric emergency department/inpatient unit as well as a newborn nursery overseen by pediatric hospital medicine faculty. Fellows will rotate at this site for their community hospital medicine experience.
