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.
Our current and previous fellows come from a variety of training backgrounds. They have completed advanced degrees in medical education as well as public health. We are able to tailor training to meet a wide range of clinical and scholarly interests and welcome innovation and forward thinking in our fellowship applicants.
We are committed to providing excellent training for outstanding clinicians.
Our fellowship is designed to give trainees strong clinical skills to allow them to enter either community or academic hospital medicine. Our previous fellowship graduates are now spread throughout the country working in a variety of settings. Several previous fellows hold leadership roles in education and primary faculty appointments in Academic Pediatrics Hospital Medicine divisions.
Keith Torrey, MD
Dr. Torrey trained at Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia before coming to Cleveland for Med-Peds residency at Rainbow (and Case Western / University Hospitals IM), staying to be the Med-Peds chief resident and now fellowship as well. He is excitedly pursuing interests in medical education, quality improvement, medical simulation, and caring for patients of all ages with chronic and complex conditions. Outside of the hospital, he tries to run, cycle, and lift enough to burn off calories from constantly cooking new recipes--mixed in with slothfully sinking hours into reading Reddit, and daydreaming about safely resuming bar trivia and exploring all the amazing restaurants around Cleveland. Favorite thing about Cleveland? Being able to have a complete life in University Circle right around the UH campus—CWRU’s campus, museums, beautiful trails, and plenty of good restaurants and bars.
Linda Zaremba, MD
Dr. Zaremba is a native Clevelander who is excited to return home for PHM Fellowship after spending 11 years in Cincinnati for undergraduate and medical education/training. She is committed to pediatric advocacy and has been involved in efforts related to improving care of LGBT+ youth, increasing patient participation in the 2020 Census, and improving care for hospitalized febrile infants. Her research interests include Quality Improvement and Advocacy, with a specific interest in taking advantage of the downtime during hospitalization to address unmet medical and social needs. Her favorite things about Cleveland are the lake, the live music scene, great restaurants and breweries, and the friendly and inclusive attitude of the city. In her personal time she enjoys learning to cook, jogging through beautiful Cleveland neighborhoods, and playing trivia.
