Pediatric Acute Care Fellowship

The Children’s National Hospital Acute and Urgent Care Fellowship is delighted to announce that enrollment for the academic year July 2024 - June 2025 is now open. The fellowship training program is one year long with the option to extend the training to a second year. We accept up to two acute and urgent care fellows per academic year.

The fellowship is designed for clinicians seeking additional clinical and procedural training in the fields of urgent or acute care before practicing in an academic or community setting. We aim to prepare outstanding clinicians and leaders in acute and urgent care medicine. 

First APA-Accredited Acute and Urgent Care Fellowship in the Nation

The Acute and Urgent Care Fellowship at Children’s National is the first of its kind to be accredited by the Academic Pediatric Association (APA). This means that the program is raising the bar and being held to a standard of excellence in training pediatricians in acute care medicine. Our team is readying its pediatric workforce to meet the needs of patients seeking urgent/acute care, a type of care that has grown in demand since the COVID-19 pandemic.

Fellows will achieve the goals and objectives of the program through:

  • Caring for patients directly in Fast Track, urgent care and community emergency department settings
  • Working alongside pediatric emergency medicine and clinical pediatrician colleagues
  • Supervising other trainees 
  • Completing a comprehensive curriculum that includes conferences, didactics, simulation sessions and multiple subspecialty elective experiences with a strong focus on academic and clinical excellence
