The Center For Pediatric Education

Our Education Center provides the administrative support for all fellows, resident, medical student, and faculty education at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital.

Dr. Katherine Mason oversees the Pediatric Fellowship Programs. In addition, each Fellowship has a dedicated Fellowship Director. The Pediatric Residency Program is directed by Dr. Keith Ponitz with assistance of Associate Directors, Drs. Allayne Stephans and Ross Myers, and Assistant Director, Dr. Marie Clark. Our Medical Student Program is directed by Dr. Michael Dell, and Assistant Director, Dr. Erin Frank. Together we work to develop innovative educational programs for all learners interested in child health.

Under the leadership of Michele Fort, our Program Administrator, the Education Coordinators attend to all administrative requirements of the pediatric training programs, from assuring compliance with ACGME and other regulatory agencies to recruitment and orientation. In addition, the coordinators assist all fellows and residents with their professional lives.

We are all dedicated to maintaining the tradition of educational excellence that makes UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital a wonderful place to continue your career.

Fellowship Programs Mission

The mission of our Fellowship Training Program mirrors that of the American College of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. This is to train academic physicians who will become leaders in their respective fields. It is our aim to provide each fellow with a solid foundation in clinical medicine as well as encourage interest in research. Our trainees become well rounded physicians ready to enter the world of academic medicine or pursue careers in private practice as well. Many of our former fellows pursue continued training in Child Neurology subspecialty education such as epilepsy and neurogenetics. Child Neurology Residency/Fellowship positions are open to candidates who have completed at least two years of training in general pediatrics. The first year of training is spent in Adult Neurology. Trainees are expected to complete a research project by the end of their training.
