Pediatric Hospital Medicine

  • Curriculum

    During the first clinically focused year, fellows will work directly with attending faculty on our general pediatric teaching services with the primary goals of becoming strong clinical leaders of multidisciplinary teams and improving bedside teaching skills in the context of family-centered rounds. In addition, fellows will gain advanced skills to manage neonatal and pediatric patients who are unstable or decompensating working with pediatric critical care, transport medicine, neonatology and anesthesia faculty. Experiences with the surgical consult and children with special healthcare needs services will round out the first year. The subsequent years’ clinical time will focus on developing further independence and allow fellows to choose experiences tailored to their expected pursuits.

    Academic Experiences

    All fellows will acquire skills in biostatistics, clinical epidemiology, quality improvement science, research design, patient safety and adult learning theory. Further, all fellows will have a longitudinal experience with a senior hospital leader that focuses on strategic planning and understanding of the business case for quality care. With the guidance of a mentorship team, each fellow will choose an area in which to acquire additional advanced skills and be expected to produce an associated scholarly project or projects that apply these skills. Strong options at Cincinnati Children’s for more advanced, degree-granting study include quality improvement, clinical epidemiology and medical education.
