Our mission is to develop outstanding academic pediatric subspecialists with expertise in clinical medicine, teaching skills, and scholarship who will become future leaders in pediatrics. We provide superb clinical and scholarly training in a nurturing environment that emphasizes an individualized approach to education. We are highly committed to ensuring the success of our fellows and are invested in their career development. We offer rich opportunities from the vast resources of Yale School of Medicine and the Yale School of Public Health as well as unique training programs in investigative medicine, clinical research, medical education, global health, quality improvement/ patient safety, and biomedical ethics, among others.

Thank you for your interest in our training programs! Please don’t hesitate to contact me, or one of our subspecialty fellowship program directors, if you have questions about the opportunities available as a fellow in pediatrics at Yale.

Our department has a formal curriculum and a forum for fellows to meet on a weekly basis. The Yale Pediatric Fellows Conference meets weekly and features presentations on choosing research projects, grant writing, research methods, biostatistics, and career development. This series also features talks from senior faculty, who share their routes to academic success. Additionally, all fellows have the opportunity to participate in the Investigative Medicine Program and take focused courses in biostatics and principles of clinical research. Fellows can pursue advanced training in basic biology, biostatistics, clinical research, and molecular biology through courses offered at the Yale School of Medicine.
