Curriculum

The Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship curriculum is structured to provide clinical experience, individualized education and research time to meet the academic goals of fellows. Fellows spend their inpatient clinical time at Dell Children’s Medical Center with rotations on teaching and non-teaching service, as well on the Complex Care Team, which focuses on the care of children with medical complexity and chronic illness. In 2022, fellows will also complete inpatient experiences at a new community site in North Austin. The inpatient service functions with hospitalists as the primary providers with subspecialist consultants — an ideal structure to learn the practice of hospital medicine. The inpatient experience is complimented by rotations in palliative care, newborn nursery and Comprehensive Care Clinic. 

Fellows have access to a broad range of experiences for individualized curriculum tailored to each fellow’s interests and clinical goals, such as experiences in sedation, pain management and triage/transport supplement skills during inpatient clinical time. Professional development rotations in quality and safety, hospital leadership and medical education further support fellow career interests and academic work.
