Acute Care Fellowship

Children’s National Hospital is delighted to announce that enrollment has opened for our Acute Care Fellowship for the academic year July 2023 - June 2024 in Washington, D.C.

The fellowship is designed for clinicians who desire additional clinical and procedural training before practicing in academic or community emergency and acute care settings. We aim to prepare physicians for a career as excellent clinicians, as well as leaders in acute care medicine.

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

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