Adolescent Medicine Fellowship


The first year of training: Fellows are trained in providing primary care and the essential aspects of secondary and tertiary care and learn how to work with a multidisciplinary team. They receive assistance towards the development of a scholarly project and supervision of their teaching activities. Fellows are encouraged to enroll in a Masters level Public Health, Business or Education Program at The George Washington University or similar institution. Upon recommendation of the department chairman and training program director, fellows can become non-tenured faculty members of The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, at the rank of instructor.

The second year of training: Fellows progress to more in-depth assignments; this includes teaching duties, selected rotations, complex consultations and demonstration of the research skills needed to present a project for IRB approval.

The third year of training: Fellows in the third year complete their scholarly or research project, and often their MPH requirements. Third year Fellows also participate in administrative duties (scheduling organizing teaching conferences and performance improvement). In brief, this year is devoted to master the skills needed for advanced level clinical consultation, teaching, research and administrative capability, in preparation for an academic career. At graduation, trainees function independently and are ready for a junior faculty level.
