Cincinnati Children’s Pediatric Hand Therapy Fellowship is a year-long intensive program that provides specialty training and professional development in an academic pediatric medical center. The program emphasizes development of clinical, research, and leadership skills in pediatric hand therapy. The fellowship will offer occupational therapists an opportunity to learn in multi-disciplinary clinic environments and in a traditional outpatient clinic setting.

This is a unique opportunity to combine the two specialty practice areas of pediatrics and hand therapy. This fellowship is in the candidacy to be recognized as an AOTA Fellowship Program. The Division of Occupational and Physical Therapy at Cincinnati Children’s has a long-standing history of offering comprehensive and valuable fellowships for therapists seeking to expand their skills in pediatrics.
