Adolescent Medicine Fellowship Program

The origin of Adolescent Medicine at the University of Michigan was in 1990, when Dr. David Rosen joined the faculty. During his 23 years here, he established the culture of empathetic and holistic care that form the foundation of our mission. The Division of Adolescent Medicine was founded in 2015, and the Fellowship Training program began in 2019 in response to the increasing research and clinical activities.

Fellowship training provides the opportunity to work closely with faculty mentors in an environment which combines the pediatric and adolescent-focused advantages of a stand-alone children’s hospital with the breadth of faculty and clinical programs throughout the Michigan Medicine health system.

Clinical work is predominantly in our Adolescent/Young Adult Specialty Clinic, Pediatric and Adolescent Gender Services Clinic, Comprehensive Eating Disorders Program, Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology Clinic, School-based Health Centers, and the Inpatient Consultation Service.  Other clinical opportunities include Sports Medicine, University of Michigan Addiction Treatment Services, University Health Service, and Inpatient Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Service.

The length of training is three years, with the ratio of research/clinical training time increasing from the first through the third year. Fellows will be involved in scholarly activities culminating in an academic product by the end of the fellowship.

The University of Michigan, C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital opened in 2011. The new hospital features a 12-story inpatient tower and nine-story clinic tower, a dedicated pediatric emergency department, an on-site Ronald McDonald House, and private rooms. The hospital also offers a new and larger home for specialty services not offered anywhere else in Michigan for newborns, children, adolescents, and pregnant women. 

The University of Michigan Medical School's 9 basic science and 20 clinical departments have uncommon depth and amazing collegiality among faculty and staff leading to extraordinary collaborations. Our research enterprise, clinical and educational programs consistently rank among the best in the nation.  We are committed to excellence in all areas of our tripartite mission.
