The Division of Hospital-Based Medicine is pleased to have initiated a fellowship in pediatric hospital medicine in July 2015. Our program offers a unique fellowship experience by harnessing the clinical and academic assets on the joint medical campuses of Lurie Children’s and Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. Fellows engage in both supervised and independent clinical experiences at our top-ranked, free-standing tertiary children’s hospital, newborn care at Northwestern’s Prentice Women’s Hospital, sedation training, and a tailored community hospitalist experience at one of our many outstanding community outreach sites. Fellows are provided protected research time and dedicated mentorship to support the development, conduction, and publication of a scholarly project. Core curriculum and quality improvement education are included as well as options for advanced degrees in public health, clinical investigation, or quality improvement at Northwestern University are available during a two-year or extended three-year fellowship and our Fellows are strongly encouraged to enroll. Our fellows are eligible for full scholarships to support their pursuit of an advance degree.
The general structure of our program is provided in the table below. Our fellowship structure offers a diverse but flexible clinical experience by allowing fellows to identify general pediatric and ICU experiences that match their academic and career interests. Core faculty support education and mentorship of fellows in each clinical arena in order to maximize evidence-based practice.
