Training / Technical Assistance (22)
The Fellowship in Adolescent Medicine provides clinical and research training in preparation for a career in academic adolescent medicine and research. Fellows maintain a continuity panel of teenagers and young adults at the teen clinic in the Harriet Lane Clinic.
Trainees may select a mentor from among the many division faculty, who bring a broad range of clinical and research expertise to the program. Fellows will complete research projects and a specialized curriculum under the guidance of five core faculty who are board-certified in Adolescent Medicine and widely published in their fields.
Trainees are also encouraged to take courses at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, where they may earn a Masters of Public Health or Masters of Health Science during their fellowship.
Fellows develop leadership and cultural competencies through the interdisciplinary Leadership in Adolescent Health Training Program, which aims to reduce ethnic and socio-economic disparities in health care.
