Number of fellows per year: 2 fellows/year

Length of fellowship: 3 years. The first year is predominantly clinical, and the second and third years involve Master’s degree-level training, intensive mentorship, and a strong focus on the areas defined within the fellow’s chosen track.

Focus: The first year of fellowship is similar for fellows on all tracks and is designed to take already fantastic residents/general pediatricians and focus on developing them into clinical experts in pediatric hospital medicine through experiences in inpatient general pediatrics, complex care, co-management, assessment and stabilization of the critically ill child, and newborn care with guided mentorship from leaders in the field. The first year also includes broad exposures to quality improvement, patient safety, medical operations, informatics, research, and medical education. The second and third years of fellowship are track-specific and include in-depth exposures to the area of focus as well as Master’s level training at the University of Pennsylvania, just steps away from CHOP.

The Quality Improvement, Patient Safety, and Medical Operations track is run in partnership with the CHOP Office for Clinical Quality Improvement and the Center for Healthcare Improvement and Patient Safety (CHIPS) at the University of Pennsylvania, and includes a Master’s in Health Policy Research with special coursework in quality improvement and patient safety.
