Q. What rotations are offered?
Suggested rotations include Gynecology, Dermatology, College Health, School-Based Health, Sports Medicine and Mental Health Experiences, which include Outpatient Psychiatry, Multi-Disciplinary Eating Disorders Clinic and Substance Abuse. Suggested rotations are scheduled instead of clinical time for up to 40 half-day sessions per year, without use of administrative/research time. Rotations may be tailored to the fellow’s needs and interests. If additional rotation opportunities are sought in excess of the allotted time, fellows may use their research time, e.g., with Child-Adolescent Protection Services, Generations Teen-Tot program and many other Children's National divisions. One two-week block of subspecialty experience may be scheduled in the second or third year to accommodate the fellow’s career needs.
