Fellowship Education

Our child and adolescent fellowship offers a broad variety of different clinical experiences. Fellows rotate through multiple community-based settings as well as two pediatric hospitals. The educational curriculum is designed to provide the fellow with robust experiences and perspectives throughout our Michigan community. Prioritizing patient care and the education of our residents is at the core of our mission. The fellows are engaged with the general residents in various educational opportunities such as DEI-themed book clubs, a department-wide Film Festival, Residency Research Poster Day, resident sub-specialty conferences, community outreach projects, resident retreats, and resident wellness days.
