Focus:  The goal of our program will be to train fellows to be expert clinicians in the care of hospitalized children and effective leaders in education, research, and quality improvement.  During their clinical experiences, fellows will become competent in managing various patient presentations, with clinical curriculum focusing on the medically complex patient.  Fellows will enhance their teaching skills with medical students, pediatric residents, and med-peds residents.  All fellows will be expected to complete a scholarly project where they will be principal investigator and be working towards producing a manuscript.
