Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship

Mission Statement

The Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship's mission is to provide a comprehensive educational experience that fosters clinical and academic excellence while preparing fellows for a successful career by: providing a complete, evidenced-based curriculum in the field of Pediatric Hospital Medicine; engaging in local and national quality improvement and research efforts; and demonstrating the highest standards in patient- and family-centered care.

To achieve our mission, the PHM faculty and fellows are dedicated to diagnosing and treating pediatric patients admitted to the hospital using patient- and family-centered principles, medication stewardship and evidenced-based medicine. Located in the region's only pediatric hospital, Burn Center and Level I Trauma Center, the program utilizes a multi-disciplinary approach to enhance the patient experience and address the unique needs of patients and families living in Central New York.

The program is committed to preparing fellows for a successful career in Pediatric Hospital Medicine. Fellows train in the full spectrum of hospital-based care and gain the distinctive clinical expertise required for inpatient medicine. The comprehensive curriculum and diverse patient population prepare fellows for the challenges of practicing in both academic and community settings.

Our pediatric hospital division reflects the diverse opportunities at Upstate. In addition to clinical responsibilities, members of our team are involved in the Pediatric Residency, Pediatric Clerkship, Quality Improvement, Internal Medicine Residency, Utilization Management and Pediatric Palliative Care. Our research efforts primarily focus on the promotion of safe and effective care for hospitalized children through quality improvement initiatives at the local, state, and national level. However, clinical research opportunities are also available through Upstate Medical University, Norton College of Medicine.
