Pediatrics Hospital Medicine Fellowship Program



The Hospital Medicine Fellowship Program provides clinical and scholarly training with the goal of developing future hospitalists and academic leaders in the field. The clinical and research opportunities are unparalleled, and San Diego is an exciting city with an inviting year-round climate.

Clinical training occurs predominantly at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego. Outstanding possibilities for research training are available under the guidance of Pediatric Hospital Medicine faculty, as well as world-class collaborators at UCSD.  

Our Hospital Medicine Fellowship Program is accepting applications. Candidates must be BC/BE in pediatrics by the beginning of the fellowship.

Starting in 2022, the UCSD-Rady Children's PHM Fellowship will be participating in ERAS. Applications are accepted per the ERAS timeline and will continue to be accepted through the fall. We will start offering interview invitations per the ERAS timeline and strongly encourage applicants to submit their materials prior to this date. Applicants must register for NRMP and submit their rank list by the NRMP deadline each year. For exact dates, please access the NRMP website at www.nrmp.org  and review the upcoming deadlines for the "Pediatrics Specialties Fall Match." The fellowship begins the following July (specific date set by UCSD School of Medicine, typically July 5-8th to allow for moving days).”

You are encouraged to indicate your interest in applying for the PHM fellowship by contacting Dr. Erin Fisher, c/o of the Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship Coordinator: phmfellowship@rchsd.org.
