1. Children’s National Health System
Washington, DC 20010
The fellowship program at Children’s National will train general pediatric residency graduates/general pediatricians in aspects of clinical care, procedural skills, teaching strategies, quality improvement and research fundamentals related to the emerging field of pediatric urgent care. The goal of the fellowship is to facilitate the integration of pediatricians into all pediatric environments—emergency departments, fast track, urgent care, private practice and develop future leaders in the field.
Fellows spend dedicated blocks of time learning from specialists in disciplines such as orthopedics, radiology and ENT and gaining experience in sedation, ultrasound, and procedural skills. Regularly occurring didactics and a course in quality improvement is provided and fellows are encouraged to participate in departmental teaching activities, administrative committees, research, and quality improvement projects depending on interest.
Suitable candidates must have completed a residency in pediatrics. Interested practicing pediatricians are also encouraged to apply. This one-year fellowship is designed for pediatricians interested in practicing in either an academic or community setting who desire additional clinical and procedural pediatric training. Fellows will work alongside Pediatric Emergency Medicine faculty at both campuses of Children’s National

5. PM Pediatrics Fellowship Programs
Pediatric Urgent Care Medicine Fellowship
In July 2012, PM Pediatrics launched the first-ever fellowship program in pediatric urgent care medicine. This is an exciting opportunity for graduating pediatric residents and pediatricians who wish to enter this emerging field of medicine. Our one-year program includes supervised clinical training at all PM Pediatrics sites, as well as rotations in Orthopedics, Radiology, ENT, Opthalmology, EMS, Allergy/Asthma, and Procedural Elective.
The fellowship in pediatric urgent care medicine at PM Pediatrics is the first of its kind and is designed to close the gaps from pediatric residency training, while enhancing the clinician’s ability to practice in a high-acuity, fast-paced environment. We supplement our clinical experience with sub-specialty rotations, monthly lectures, procedural training workshops, and medical simulation, to accomplish the goal of creating academic and clinical experts in the emerging field of pediatric urgent care medicine. The graduate will develop the skills necessary to deliver expert care, manage a practice and become a leader in the field.
Pediatric Urgent Care Fellowship – Accelerated Track for Experienced Pediatricians
We offer an accelerated 6-month fellowship track specifically tailored for experienced pediatricians. When making the transition to pediatric urgent care, pediatricians may have limited experience with bedside procedures, orthopedic injuries, and radiology interpretation. In addition, urgent care providers are called upon to render expert (and sometimes emergent) care in a setting where there is limited availability of on-site consultants.
With the understanding that a seasoned pediatrician has already acquired expertise in various areas, our accelerated track is targeted at filling in the gaps where needed, personalizing the program to the fellow’s individual needs. Our fellows work alongside our experienced pediatric emergency medicine-trained providers to gain proficiency in pediatric urgent care medicine. The graduate will develop the skills necessary to become an expert in the field of pediatric urgent care medicine.
