Welcome from the Director

Welcome to the University of Rochester's Adolescent Medicine Fellowship Program, one of the first in the country, and the home of the biopsychosocial model of care and self-determination theory. Our program combines strong interprofessional care, exemplary education, innovative research, and community engagement. We strongly emphasize wellness, inclusion, and collegiality. We are looking for fellows from diverse backgrounds with passion and intellectual curiosity who are also great team players, have a good sense of humor, and are not afraid to make a few waves! I invite you to explore our website to learn more about our fellowship and life in Rochester.

Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions. I look forward to meeting you via our new virtual interviewing format. All my best to you with your career in adolescent medicine!
