The Section of Pediatric Hospital Medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital is proud to partner with Pediatric Hospital Medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian Komansky Children’s Hospital to offer trainees a diverse education in clinical, administrative, and research-based hospital medicine at multiple facilities across Manhattan and New York City at large. This fellowship program is a joint effort between pediatrics faculty at Columbia University Irving Medical Center and Weill Cornell Medicine and highlights the strengths and special features of each major academic institution, while preparing trainees for careers as leaders across the spectrum of pediatric hospital medicine.

Curriculum

The educational mission of our program is achieved through application of principles of clinical care, education, and research within the context of the practice of pediatric hospital medicine. Fellows participate in existing hospital medicine attending conferences as well as dedicated fellows’ conferences including case reviews/clinical conundrums, journal clubs, research conferences, and didactic sessions. Fellows may also attend monthly departmental ethics conferences and palliative care collaboration meetings.

Clinical Training

Clinical rotations include core inpatient medicine, surgical comanagement, care of newborns, care of critically ill children, palliative care, antibiotic stewardship, and more! Rotations are designed to capitalize on the breadth and diversity of clinical experiences available at various sites within the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital enterprise, including the following:

  • NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital
  • NewYork-Presbyterian Komansky Children’s Hospital
  • NewYork-Presbyterian Queens
  • Blythedale Children’s Hospital

Research Training

In the longitudinal “Systems and Scholarship” module, fellows will receive core training in quality improvement, clinical research, hospital operations/leadership, advocacy, and medical education. Fellows will have additional opportunities to customize their fellowship by choosing advanced training based on their area of interest, which includes coursework and dedicated mentorship from faculty at both institutions. For a full list of faculty research interests, please refer to our listing; some examples include family-centered rounds, quality improvement and clinical pathway development, primary palliative care, patient experience, pain control in post-operative patients, and trainee autonomy.

Benefits

Fellows are employees of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and affiliated with Columbia University Irving Medical Center. With these affiliations come many benefits!
