DBP Clinical Rotation for Residents and Medical Students:  All pediatric and medicine-pediatric residents participate in a month-long developmental behavioral pediatrics rotation. Fourth-year medical students may elect this one-month rotation. The rotation includes clinical experiences in primary and interdisciplinary clinics for evaluation and management of common DBP conditions as listed under the Fellowship description. Topic-focused teaching occurs in clinics and weekly educational sessions. Visit the Pediatric Residency Program website for more information about residency programs. Our program will also offer some support for travel for medical students from other institutions who are interested in DBP.
