Fellows have a multitude of diverse outpatient and inpatient experiences which help them develop their expertise in the clinical diagnosis, management and prevention of chronic and acute conditions in adolescents. The wide range of conditions we treat include eating disorders, reproductive health, mood disorders, substance abuse, and GLBTQ care, to name a few.
Beyond standard electives, additional opportunities may be developed based on individual interest and many are coordinated in community service organizations.
The research activities of the Division of Adolescent Medicine are far-ranging and diverse, but all focus on clinically relevant concerns related to adolescent health. Fellows acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to design, implement, analyze and report substantive research.
Opportunities exist for fellows to fulfill their research requirements while pursuing an advanced degrees, such as Master of Public Health (MPH). Ninety five percent of tuition is covered by the University.
Fellows are an integral part of the Adolescent Medicine Division and work with the team in serving as a resource to the adolescent medicine community.
