Characteristics of Our Fellows
We welcome applications from pediatricians who are committed to patient care, education and scholarship, and who have completed an accredited pediatric residency program and are eligible for the Pediatric Boards. Fellows who are board-eligible must become board-certified in order to be eligible for the DBP sub-board.
In general, our fellows are excellent clinicians and have been highly rated residents. They are committed to developing clinical skills for evaluation, treatment and the development of management plans for children with developmental and behavioral problems. Fellows develop a research study that focuses on important questions or hypotheses in areas of interest. Typically, our fellows are highly motivated to learn the skills of clinical care and evaluation, to learn how to teach, to learn the skills needed to develop a research project and carry it to publication, to learn to be an effective advocate, and to learn to work with teams.
