Program Director

Welcome to our Adolescent Medicine Fellowship website. We offer ACGME accredited fellowship training at the University of Rochester Medical Center that combines education, research, and clinical experience and prepares fellows to sit for the adolescent medicine subspecialty certification exam. 

I invite you to explore our website and learn more about our Adolescent Medicine Fellowship; within these pages you will find information about our community based 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.
