Fellowship Program Overview

General Pediatrics Fellows

General Pediatrics Fellows: Drs. MacKenzi Hillard,
Mark Craig, Andrew Sherman, and Robert Nutt.

The University of Rochester's Academic General Pediatrics Fellowship Program has been successfully training general pediatrics leaders for over four decades. In 1998, we received the Academic Pediatric Association's National Teaching Award, its most prestigious educational award. The division has supplied many of the nation's leaders in general pediatrics. These faculty interact with, guide, and inspire our trainees. Our fellows have the option to obtain specialized training in health services research, educational scholarship, or other primary care areas such as telemedicine, child abuse, or global health. Our graduates are prepared to assume academic, policy making, or community leadership careers and have the ability to do any and all of the following:

  • Conduct research directed to primary medical care issues as independent, extramurally funded investigators
  • Teach future primary care pediatricians to recognize and address the multifaceted issues that affect children’s health
  • Participate actively in clinical care, program innovation, policy development and advocacy that addresses the needs of underserved and minority children and families
