The mission of Phoenix Children's Hospital Medicine Fellowship is to train fellows to become the future generation of pediatric hospitalists who will provide skilled clinical care to acutely ill and injured hospitalized children, enhance the performance of the hospital and health care system, generate new knowledge for the field through research and innovation, and develop skills to educate other physicians and health care providers. The program hopes to train physicians who will serve as future leaders in the field of Pediatric Hospital Medicine.
Fellows will be able to evaluate and manage pediatric patients with a broad range of medical problems and varying levels of acuity, while offering care that is compassionate, evidence-based, cost-effective, and patient-centered.
