About the Program
The Baylor College of Medicine/CHRISTUS Children’s Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship is a three-year fellowship program with one fellow position per year. Our program consists of a basic training program, which includes clinical training and research training. The fellows’ second- and third-years will be heavily focused on research and participation in the fellows’ continuity clinic and teaching. The fellows spend at least eight blocks on the inpatient service, and four blocks acquiring outpatient skills, interacting with patients and referring physicians. They experience training in pathology, radiology/radiation oncology, and transplant. Multidisciplinary programs include pediatric survivorship, pediatric cancer genetics/cancer predisposition, and vascular anomalies. The fellows’ second and third years focus on average eighty percent scholarly activity. This 36-month program provides the trainee with state-of-the-art knowledge and skills required for an academic career, which includes clinical service, teaching, research/quality improvement, advocacy, and administration/leadership.
