Program Structure

The structure of our program is provided in the following table.   Our rotation curriculum is based on the proposed ACGME fellowship program requirements with our overall goal being to prepare the fellow for excellence in clinical care, medical education, quality improvement, research, and advocacy.  We foresee our fellows being on the cutting edge of generating new knowledge and scholarship in research, practice management, patient outcomes, patient safety and quality improvement.

Our didactic curriculum is provided during protected time and covers all the American Board of Pediatrics content specifications for hospital medicine.

We offer customized and flexible training by allowing fellows to identify experiences that match their academic and career interests with a focus on progressive clinical autonomy. Opportunities are available for masters degree preparation at Marshall University and we also provide flexibility to complete programs at other institutions and have had residents do so.
