Adolescent Medicine Fellowship

The Adolescent Medicine Fellowship program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai trains physicians to serve as leaders in adolescent medicine. Our three-year fellowship is certified by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), and provides physicians with the skills they need to become expert clinicians, educators, researchers, and advocates.

We’ve designed our curriculum to help fellows gain individualized clinical, academic, and research experience over the course of three years. Learn more about our training program.

Each year, the Department of Pediatrics trains three fellows in Adolescent Medicine who have completed general Pediatrics training. Fellows bring a wide variety of expertise to their training toward leadership in Adolescent Medicine.
