Division of Adolescent Medicine

Adolescent Medicine Fellowship Program

Established in 1967, the Division of Adolescent Medicine at the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM) was one of the first in the country. CHAM’s Adolescent Medicine Fellowship Program combines a rich history of innovation and mentorship with state-of-the-art clinical, research and educational experiences to train future leaders in the field of adolescent medicine.

Over the course of our three-year program, fellows train in a variety of clinical and formal educational settings and participate in structured research opportunities and quality-improvement projects. Our core faculty members mentor each fellow to support their clinical and scholarly pursuits and are committed to the success of our trainees both during and after fellowship.

Why our program could be right for you

The mission of the Adolescent Medicine Fellowship Program at the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore is to provide a comprehensive clinical and research experience, centered on our largely resource-poor, high-poverty patient population, so that fellows may succeed in an academic position and have the necessary skills to become leaders in the field of adolescent medicine.

Children's Hospital at Montefiore

Located on our Moses Campus, the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM) is a premier academic children’s hospital nationally renowned for its clinical excellence, innovative research and commitment to training the next generation of pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists.

Even as it provides outstanding tertiary care to patients from all over the world, CHAM stands firmly rooted in its local community. This discipline gives it a charm and familiarity that really makes it feel like a CHAMily.

I believe that every teen deserves quality and accessible reproductive healthcare. I am lucky to train at a facility that’s dedicated to that mission.

Adolescent Medicine Fellow Graduate 2021

From the second I matched at CHAM, I felt like part of the CHAMily. The diverse patient population and variety of clinical exposures in core adolescent medicine, from reproductive to transgender health, make CHAM an amazing place to learn and grow.
