Note: This is not an all-inclusive list.

Because roughly 70% of pediatric inpatient care is provided in community hospitals, understanding the opportunities and challenges presented in these settings is vital to a pediatric hospitalist’s expertise. Fellows will have the opportunity to rotate through two North Carolina community hospitals, including Mission Children’s Hospital in Asheville NC for the core Community rotation (housing will be provided), and WakeMed Raleigh Children’s Hospital in Raleigh NC for pediatric intensive care experience.
