While a resident at Johns Hopkins, I rotated at Kennedy Krieger Institute and was immediately impressed with the faculty, their knowledge, commitment to research, and their love of teaching. I knew it would be a privilege to work here!

Fellowship Highlights

  • Clinical learning is achieved through rotations at the Kennedy Krieger Institute pediatric rehabilitation continuum of care, including pediatric consults in the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center and PICU, inpatient care in the Kennedy Krieger rehabilitation hospital, outpatient clinical programs at Kennedy Krieger and Johns Hopkins, and community care at the Kennedy Krieger rehabilitation day hospital program.
  • Fellows follow their own patients in weekly pediatric rehabilitation clinics, as well as see patients in a wide variety of subspecialty clinics according to a monthly schedule.
  • Working as part of an interdisciplinary team, fellows learn about the contributions of other disciplines, such as neuropsychology and behavior psychology, and learn to manage a rehabilitation team in this dynamic environment.
