Pediatric Acute Care Fellowship Opportunity at Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C.

The Children’s National Pediatric Acute Care Fellowship was established in 2017 and is a 1-year program housed in the Division of Emergency Medicine.  As the first GME-supported Pediatric Acute Care fellowship in the U.S., our program is recognized as a model of excellence. In 2023, we became the first nationally accredited Pediatric Acute Care fellowship program in the country. The Acute Care fellowship equips the next generation of acute and urgent care physician leaders with the skills to succeed clinically and in scholarship, education, and advocacy. Our fellows train alongside pediatric emergency medicine attendings, fellows, and pediatricians at the #5 children’s hospital in the country, and benefit from the extensive resources available at Children’s National. We provide training in skills ranging from procedural care to bedside ultrasound, research, advocacy, health-care leadership, and quality improvement. Graduates are prepared to address the evolving health care needs of children with acute illnesses. Our alumni are successfully employed at prestigious academic hospitals and both affiliated and independent ambulatory sites.
