Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship at Boston Children's Hospital

Our Mission

To train academic leaders in the field of pediatric hospital medicine by providing advanced experiences in hospital-based clinical care, medical education, quality improvement and clinical research.

Program Description

Children's Hospital Inpatient Service (CHIPS) was created in 1998 and is one of the oldest pediatric hospitalist programs in the country. The CHIPS program is committed to providing outstanding clinical care for hospitalized pediatric patients, education of our pediatric housestaff and medical students, as well as performing meaningful clinical research and serving in many healthcare quality improvement roles.

As part of this commitment, the Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship at Boston Children’s Hospital was created to offer focused training in optimal care for hospitalized children, medical education, clinical research, quality improvement, clinical informatics and health services research.

The 2 year curriculum includes dedicated core rotations as a supervising attending for CHIPS, as well as exposure to other general areas of hospital-based medicine; newborn care, sedation, critical care, co-management with non-medical services and complex care. Individualized rotations are also included as part of clinical training and are tailored to the interests of the fellow. These rotations may include but are not limited to transport medicine, palliative care, transitioning to adult care, acute pain management and child abuse/neglect.

The core curriculum also includes general training in hospital systems and academic scholarship; Medical Education, Patient Safety, Advocacy, Clinical Research, Quality Improvement, Evidence Based Medicine, Leadership and Business Administration. Further scholarship and degree-based academic programs include but are not limited to the following: Masters Degree in Public Health, Health Services Research Fellowship, Clinical Informatics Fellowship,
