Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship

Program Overview

Situated in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, the ACGME Accredited Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship at Seattle Children’s and the University of Washington trains future leaders in academic pediatric hospital medicine. We offer many training opportunities, including those in research, quality improvement, hospital administration, and medical education.

As the only academic pediatric hospital medicine program in the region, we serve a broad geographic area across Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho with a diverse and large patient population. Our faculty are nationally renowned leaders and researchers in pediatric hospital medicine.

Our primary objective is to train physicians for a career in academic pediatric hospital medicine. Clinical skills are developed at Seattle Children's Hospital main campus and a community hospital in Olympia, WA. Scholarly activity and research are priorities and focus areas may include quality improvement, health equity, medical education, clinical research, patient safety, and informatics. Fellows may choose to complete a master’s certificate program in public health and epidemiology during their training, or take classes related to their focus area at the University of Washington.
