Program Director

Welcome to our Adolescent Medicine Fellowship website. We offer accredited fellowship training at the University of Rochester Medical Center that prepares fellows to sit for subspecialty qualifying examinations conducted jointly by the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) and the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM).

I invite you to explore our website and learn more about our program; within these pages you will find information about our curriculum, our current fellows and our alumni. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I wish you much good fortune with your future career in adolescent medicine.
