Pediatric Surgery – Overview/Curriculum

Our Pediatric Surgery Fellowship is structured to train a superb pediatric surgeon. The rotations are designed to provide outstanding didactic teaching and operative experience. The curriculum is set in a longitudinal fashion that involves exposure to the clinics, to the operating room, to the emergency room and trauma bays, and through quality improvement projects. Twenty-two months are spent working with key faculty from the department of pediatric surgery, one month is spent focusing pediatric care in our Pediatric ICU, and one month is spent focusing on neonatal care in our Neonatal ICU.

Research: Fellows will be required to participate in one quality improvement project during their two-year fellowship training program.

The fellow will be given a graduated amount of responsibility as the program progresses. By the end of the program, it is expected that the fellow will have had enough experience in the following fields to be considered competent:

  • Abdominal
  • Critical Care
  • Disorders of Sexual Differentiation
  • Endocrine Anomalies
  • Fetal Medicine
  • Genitourinary Tract Conditions
  • Gynecological Conditions
  • Head and Neck
  • Neonatology
  • Non-Cardiac Thoracic
  • Oncology
  • Skin and Subcutaneous Tissues
  • Transplantation
  • Trauma and Burns

Fellows will complete rotations through the NICU and PICU, learning the essential skills for caring for critical neonates and children.
