Message from the Program Director
Hello and thank you for your interest in our training program! Our program harnesses the individual and collective strengths of two major academic institutions in New York City to provide Pediatric Hospital Medicine fellows with top-notch training in clinical care, operations, quality improvement, research, medical education, and hospital leadership.
As a fellow in our program, you will rotate at three hospitals in the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital system, where you will see firsthand the unique features of each clinical site. The two primary sites are NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital (affiliated with Columbia University Irving Medical Center) and NewYork-Presbyterian Komansky Children’s Hospital (affiliated with Weill Cornell Medicine). In addition, you will also spend time at NewYork-Presbyterian Queens, which is a community teaching hospital affiliated with Weill Cornell Medicine and Blythedale Children’s Hospital, which is an inpatient rehabilitation center affiliated with Columbia University Irving Medical Center.
These varied experiences will expose you to the vast diversity of backgrounds and conditions that we see, while providing you with greater context and perspective on hospital medicine. We believe that our clinical, educational, and research experiences will position you for a career in any setting you choose.
This website includes additional information on the application process, our curriculum and rotations, and our faculty, and please reach out if you have other questions. We hope to see you in New York City!
