Adolescent Medicine - Education


 

The University of Colorado School of Medicine Department of Pediatrics and Children's Hospital Colorado offer a variety of educational programs for medical students, residents, and fellows including the following:

Adolescent Medicine is an important part of the pediatric clerkship curriculum for third-year medical students at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Our faculty provides a lecture in adolescent medicine as part of the clerkship's core lecture series.

An elective in adolescent medicine is available for fourth-year medical students who have successfully completed a pediatric clerkship.

Clinical training during residency includes experience with primary adolescent health care and specific problems common during adolescence, including abnormalities of growth and development; orthopedic and sports medicine problems; issues relating to sexuality and reproductive health; psychosocial, mental health, and substance abuse problems; and the management of teenagers with chronic illnesses and recurrent somatic symptoms.

The University of Colorado School of Medicine Department of Pediatrics and Children's Cololrado offers a one- or three-year fellowship in adolescent medicine. The fellowship is accredited by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education. The goal of the fellowship is to provide physicians who are board eligible in pediatrics, internal medicine or family medicine with in-depth training in adolescent medicine that will prepare them for a career in clinical or academic medicine.
