Fellowship Opportunities

Our program has a longstanding commitment to excellence in patient care, scholarship, and research. Throughout residency, trainees receive rich exposure to general pediatrics and its subspecialties in order to provide a robust and comprehensive educational experience. Following completion of residency, some of our graduates elect to pursue formal subspecialty training in a chosen area to prepare for careers in academics, research, and subspecialty care. Year after year, our graduates receive highly competitive fellowship positions from a number of prestigious institutions across the nation.
