Fellowship Training

UCSF is one of the nation’s premier institutions for pediatric subspecialty training with a rich tradition of training future leaders in academic medicine. Each of our fellowship programs provides outstanding clinical training, extensive opportunities for scholarship, and excellent mentoring. A dedicated faculty and staff team provides support for career development through centralized Scholarship Oversight Committees and Fellows’ College.


Scholarship Oversight Committee
Each fellow meets annually with a dedicated committee of mentors to review goals, progress towards those goals, and to receive additional advice. Our annual departmental Research Day serves as a venue for fellows to present their scholarly work product, receive feedback and network with other fellows and faculty across divisions.


Fellows' College
Fellows' College is a professional development program for pediatric fellows with skill building activities in various domains to ensure success in their chosen career trajectory. In quarterly half-day sessions, fellows from all programs in our department come together to hone their teaching skills, learn about grant writing, project management, quality improvement, and job negotiation among other topics.
