Welcome to the Child Abuse Pediatrics Fellowship
In partnership with New York University (NYU)-Bellevue Hospital, Maimonides is accepting fellowship applications for our 3-year Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-accredited Child Abuse Pediatrics Fellowship. This fellowship unites the existing services at both institutions to provide a comprehensive experience designed to prepare physicians for an academic and clinical career.
The Child Abuse Pediatrics Fellowship offers extensive clinical training in the field of Child Abuse Pediatrics at the Maimonides Infants and Children’s Hospital. The Child Protection Team at MCH and NYU provides full-service consultations with our multidisciplinary teams. Fellows train with 4 board-certified child abuse pediatricians and have opportunities to work closely with a wide variety of subspecialists and community partners. MCH is the first National Association of Children’s Hospitals and Related Institutions (NACHRI)-certified children’s hospital in Brooklyn.
One of the unique features of this program is the incredible cultural and ethnic diversity of the patients served. This level of diversity truly trains the fellow on cross-cultural aspects that affect the prevention, intervention, treatment, and support of abused children.
The Bellevue-NYU site is a level 1 Trauma Center
The Child Abuse Pediatrics Fellowship experience
In addition to extensive clinical exposure to all forms of child maltreatment, fellows participate in comprehensive research and career mentorship, which are a vital component of this curriculum. During the 2nd and 3rd years of the fellowship, fellows research child maltreatment including, but not limited to, health disparities, access to care, quality improvement, cost-effectiveness, decision-making/decision-support, and epidemiology.
At the completion of training, fellows are eligible to attend the Child Abuse Pediatrics Sub-Board examination. Graduates will be equipped to seek a faculty position requiring clinical expertise in Child Abuse Pediatrics.
The future of medical care is you
