The adolescent medicine fellowship at Cincinnati Children’s is a 3-year ACGME accredited program. We seek trainees who are board eligible or board certified in pediatrics, internal medicine, internal medicine-pediatrics, and family medicine. Candidates who have completed an internal medicine or family medicine residency and have demonstrated exceptional research or leadership achievements may be eligible to enter a 2-year program. 

Foreign medical graduates, physicians who have graduated from a medical school outside of the United States, Canada, or Puerto Rico must have a valid ECFMG certificate that does not expire prior to the start of fellowship.
