The Fellowship in Adolescent Medicine provides clinical and research training in preparation for a career in academic adolescent medicine and research. The three-year program includes clinical experiences in sports medicine, sexually transmitted infections, substance abuse, adolescent psychology, endocrinology, school-based health, and more.
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.
Upon completing the program, fellows have passed their board exams or become board eligible within two years and acquired positions at academic medical centers.
An individual is eligible for the program if he or she has completed residency training in pediatrics, family medicine, internal medicine, or internal medicine/pediatrics; is a citizen, non-citizen national, or permanent resident alien of the United States; and intends to pursue an academic career as an adolescent medicine researcher in an area of expertise represented in our program’s research mentors.
