Pediatric Medical Education

Our Patients' Futures Depends on Future Pediatricians

Investing in Pediatric Fellows


Fellowship training is a key opportunity for young doctors who have finished their medical degree and residency training. A pediatric fellow completes subspecialty clinic work and research, pushing the boundaries on current medical knowledge as they start down the path of the next generation of discoveries.

Attracting the best and brightest fellows to UVA improves the care we are able to offer our patients, both now and in the future. Further, fellows add to our already expert faculty, and allows our best teachers to pass down their skills, research, and clinical work to the next generation of pediatric caregivers.

Federal funding for fellowship training has decreased, which is where philanthropic support comes in. UVA currently offers fellowships in the following pediatric programs:

  • Allergy
  • Cardiology
  • Clinical Informatics
  • Critical Care
  • Developmental-Behavioral Medicine
  • Endocrinology
  • Pediatric Gastroenterology & Nutrition
  • Hematology & Oncology
  • Neonatology
  • Nephrology
