welcome

The pediatric hospital medicine fellowship program at Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine is a two-year fellowship program.  The majority of the program’s inpatient educational experiences take place at Dayton Children’s Hospital located in Dayton, Ohio and nursery experiences take place at local birthing hospitals.

Dayton Children’s Hospital is a free-standing tertiary pediatric hospital that affords fellows the experience of serving a wide variety of patients from different ethnic, socioeconomic and geographic settings. Over the past 30 years, Dayton Children’s, the United States Air Force and Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine have collaborated to offer the country’s only civilian/military integrated pediatric residency program. Fellows will have the experience of working with civilian and military residents, residents from other programs, medical students from Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine and visiting students from across the country.

 

message from the director

Thank you for your interest in our exciting pediatric hospital medicine fellowship program at Dayton Children’s Hospital and Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine.  Since pediatric hospital medicine became a recognized specialty by the American Board of Pediatrics, we worked diligently to start a fellowship program to meet the high demands of graduating pediatric and med-peds residents interested in pursuing a career in hospital medicine.  We are actively recruiting for two fellows to start July 1, 2022. 

The fellowship’s primary site is Dayton Children’s Hospital in the division of hospital medicine.  Dayton Children’s houses the well-established integrated Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine and Wright-Patterson Air Force Integrated Pediatric Residency Program with a history of high-quality education.  Dayton Children’s Hospital serves a high volume of patients and includes a diverse hospital medicine service, a level 1 trauma center, in-house pediatric intensive care and neonatal intensive care units, and multiple robust and nationally recognized pediatric specialties. The division of hospital medicine at Dayton Children's has some of the first board certified pediatric hospitalists in the country.  Our fellows are welcomed as junior faculty and will be instrumental in contributing to the divisions' work in safe and evidenced-based patient care, scholarly activities, quality improvement science, informatics, leadership, advocacy, patient experience, and most importantly in the education of our outstanding residents, medical students, and faculty.

We are extremely proud of our environment at Dayton Children’s. We have a diverse faculty that work as a team to promote the health of all children within our reach. We have a warm and welcoming atmosphere with faculty that our passionate about your success as a pediatric hospitalist.
