Pediatric Fellowship Educational Series

Three Year Core Curriculum


This educational series has been developed by the Committee on Fellowship Education to address areas  of scholarly interest common to all pediatric fellows.  Over 75 sub-specialized physicians in training will attend 5-6 half-day seminars spread across their 3 years of fellowship. Attendance is mandatory and the trainee is excused from clinical responsibilities. In addition to providing core educational material, these sessions allow trainees in different disciplines and throughout the department to meet and interact with one another in an informal and collegial environment.
