Child Abuse Pediatrics Fellowship Program

At Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, the three-year Child Abuse Pediatrics Fellowship through the Mayerson Center for Safe and Healthy Children is designed to prepare physicians for an academic and clinical career in Child Abuse Pediatrics.

Through a broad range of experiences, fellows develop proficiency in the areas of clinical care, research, teaching and administration. Clinical areas of study include physical child abuse, sexual child abuse, medical neglect, prevention and advocacy.

Fellows also develop skills in research methodology, including study design, writing proficiency and statistical analysis. Opportunities to improve clinical and didactic teaching of residents, students and other healthcare professionals are provided. Administrative skills, such as multidisciplinary team building, budget preparation and fundraising are taught.

Faculty members have a broad range of clinical and research interests in all areas of child abuse pediatrics. Faculty in other divisions are readily available through subspecialty electives and informal consultations and as research mentors.
