The Duke Department of Pediatrics fellowship programs are designed to provide outstanding training to prepare our fellows to excel as sub-specialty clinicians, researchers, and teachers within the field of pediatrics. The department currently trains fellows in a wide variety of sub-specialty programs. These programs combine independent learning with modern clinical training, faculty mentoring, didactic instructions and top-notch research. Each program offers a variety of options for interested fellows, such as a focus on clinical expertise, research, subspecialty areas, or multidisciplinary proficiency.
