Fellows' College

Fellows' College provides professional development workshops for UCSF pediatric fellows in the areas of career development, research, teaching, education and leadership.

Program Overview

Fellows' College has four half day workshops per year with graduated programming to address the different skill development needs as fellows' progress from Year 1 to Year 3 of fellowship training.


The Scholarship Oversight Committee (SOC) is the official departmental committee responsible for verification that fellows have met eligibility criteria of meaningful scholarly work as defined by the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP). Fellows need to be signed off by the SOC at the end of training to be eligible for subspecialty board certification.


The Individual Development Plan (IDP) is an action plan that the fellowship training director, fellow and mentors use as a platform for addressing specific skills and knowledge areas, training needs, scholarly activity, research/clinical activities and requirements in their subspecialties.
