Urgent Care Fellowship

Children’s National Hospital is delighted to announce that enrollment has opened for our Urgent Care Fellowship for the academic year 2021-2022 in Washington, D.C.

The medical necessity for urgent care medicine has been steadily increasing over the past few years with no signs of decline. Current pediatric residents lack the exposure to this environment, and we aim to provide the bridge between the two. This fellowship is designed to prepare physicians for a career in pediatric urgent care medicine as excellent clinicians, administrators, academic thinkers and leaders in the field.

Fellows will achieve the goals and objectives of the program through:

  • Caring for patients directly in emergency and urgent care settings
  • Supervising other trainees including residents, physician assistants and medical students
  • Completing a comprehensive curriculum that includes conferences, didactics, courses, simulation sessions and workshops with a strong focus on academic excellence

We aim to produce well-trained, academic urgent care physicians who will be easily employable at the end of the fellowship in any urgent care setting.
