Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship

Fellowship Programs

Our Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship program is the only such program in Arizona. Our program's first fellow started in July 2014, received initial ACGME accreditation in April 2020 and currently accepts 3 fellows per year. Interested applicants can apply through a common Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship Application adopted by the majority of Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship programs.

Our Fellowship is designed to prepare physicians for a career in Pediatric Hospital Medicine as both excellent clinicians and academic thinkers. Fellows achieve the goals and objectives of the program through clinical and scholarly work as part of an individualized curriculum.

Our Hospital Medicine Department has many experienced faculty members, some of whom have taught for more than twenty years as well as eight fellowship trained hospitalists. Faculty knowledge and experience, combined with elements such as broad medical and surgical subspecialty support and an experienced staff form a strong foundation for the fellowship program. Fellows have access to pursue an advanced degree through the University of Arizona.
