Training Schedule

Our Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship is a two-year program that is dedicated to training fellows to become leaders within the field. This is accomplished through a robust curriculum that focuses on high quality clinical care, medical education, research, and quality improvement.  The program is structured to adhere to ACGME training requirements while also designed to provide fellows with an individualized curriculum to meet their personal career goals. Each year is composed of 13 four-week blocks. Our fellowship is structured so that fellows do not take any 24-hr calls. With the exception of the Community Hospital Medicine rotation which is spent at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor, fellows will spend the majority of their clinical experiences at The University of Michigan’s C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, our tertiary-care hospital located in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Fellows will be eligible to sit for the American Board of Pediatrics Pediatric Hospital Medicine board upon completion of our fellowship.
