Fellowship Training

One of the core missions for the Stead family Department of Pediatrics is Medical Education.  This includes providing the proper set up, resources and oversight to ensure successful specialized medical training in our pediatric subspecialties.  Our goals include training the next generation of physicians on:

  • Delivering state-of-the-art clinical care for children within their areas of subspecialty
  • Engaging in effective and constructive medical education activities with other learners
  • Allowing for robust research exposure with the proper mentorship especially for those interested in careers as physician scientists

This is achieved through an individual curriculum within each subspecialty in addition to a centralized departmental curriculum that tackles important common topics including research skills and relevant software, epidemiology/biostatistics, Quality improvement, leadership skills and business in health care.  

We provide opportunities for our learners from across different divisions to network with the option of wellness activities that take advantage of our local natural attractions.
