Study Hospital Medicine at a Top Children's Hospital

The PHM Fellowship program is headquartered at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, a member of the UPMC health system.

For the last eight years, Children's has made the U.S. News & World Report Honor Roll of America’s “Best Children’s Hospitals” list.

We serve as the primary pediatric referral facility in the region and as a community hospital for children of the Pittsburgh area.

What You Will Learn as a Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellow

Each year, we see more than 75,000 children in the Emergency Department leading to around 5,000 general pediatric admissions.

Thus, PHM fellows will take on many roles to gain experience caring for children with a wide range of disease states.

This program aims for fellows and faculty: 

  • To practice equitable, high-value, evidence-based clinical care of hospitalized children. 
  • To utilize skillful communication and teaching techniques to educate patients, families, trainees, and colleagues.
  • To foster a culture of inquiry that leads to impactful scholarly products.
  • To acquire experiences, skills, and connections to become effective leaders and mentors.
