Pediatric Hospital Medicine

2-year Fellowship - One Position Per Year
One Position Per Year
Training future experts in the care of hospitalized children with acute and chronic conditions  
Offers Pathway to Board Certification

The University of Tennessee Health Science Center Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship Program is a two year fellowship.  Our program received initial ACGME accreditation in April 2020, and we accepted our first fellow in July 2019.

The goal of our program is to train fellows to be expert clinicians in the care of hospitalized children and effective leaders in education, research, and quality improvement.  During their clinical experiences, fellows will become competent in managing various patient presentations, with clinical curriculum focusing on the medically complex patient.  

Fellows will enhance their teaching skills with medical students, pediatric residents, and med-peds residents.  In addition to clinical experiences at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, our fellows will have clinical rotations at Regional One for NICU and newborn care and at St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  Clinical curriculum also includes rotations in Palliative Care and the Intermediate Care Unit, to gain experience caring for medically complex and technology-dependent patients.

All of our fellows will complete a mentored research project in their area of interest to contribute to the field of pediatric hospital medicine. We have wonderful faculty within our division and the department of pediatrics to help collaborate with our fellows’ project ideas.
