The faculty of the Division of Adolescent and Transition Medicine care deeply about the fellowship program and are committed to fellows’ success.

The specialty of Adolescent Medicine was established at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital by Jerry Rauh, MD, in 1965. The Adolescent Medicine fellowship program at Cincinnati Children’s was established in 1972 and gained accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) in 1998.

Graduates from our training program most often take positions in academic medicine that lead to leadership roles in research, program development, medical education, and health care administration. Fellows have also chosen career paths in college health, community programs, and public health.

Previous fellows’ scholarly work has included public health, community program evaluation, medical education, and healthcare quality improvement. Recent scholarly work has focused on puberty, obesity, eating disorders, depression, asthma, contraception, HIV, syphilis, and quality improvement in transgender medicine.

Program Aims

The Adolescent Medicine Fellowship program in the Division of Adolescent and Transition Medicine will prepare Adolescent Medicine fellows for careers that will improve the health and well-being of adolescents and young adults in a respectful and engaging learning environment to become experts in the field of adolescent medicine.
