The University of Minnesota has a commitment to leveraging the transformative power of equity and diversity to advance excellence in teaching, learning and community engagement. The Department of Pediatrics at the University of Minnesota promotes excellence in academic subspecialty training with an emphasis on producing academic leaders who generate the new knowledge required to provide the best care for infants, children, and adolescents.
We accomplish this through:
- Recruiting fellows with outstanding academic potential and commitment.
- Providing state-of-the-art clinical training.
- Providing exceptional training and mentorship in basic, translational, clinical, and epidemiologic research, medical education, academic leadership, and advocacy for pediatric health.
- Ensuring a scholarly work product during fellowship which serves to facilitate fellows' professional transition into academic faculty positions.
We are proud to offer medical fellowship programs in 17 pediatric subspecialties. Applications from individuals who self-identify as members of underrepresented groups are particularly welcome.
