Urgent Care Fellowship

Children’s National Hospital is delighted to announce that enrollment has opened for our Urgent Care Fellowship for the academic year July 2023 - June 2024 in Washington, D.C.

The fellowship is designed for clinicians who desire additional clinical and procedural training before practicing in academic or community settings. This fellowship is designed to prepare physicians for a career in pediatric urgent and acute 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, expert physicians who will be easily employable at the end of the fellowship in any urgent or acute care setting.
