A Transition Medicine fellowship prepares you to meet the unique needs of adolescents and young adults with pediatric-onset special health care needs as they gain independence in their medical care and prepare to move into the adult world. Within Transition Medicine, there is also recognition that many of our patients and families will have difficulty with this process as will their pediatric medical care providers. We will train you to work with the patient, family, and health care team during this process and to understand the pathophysiologic and developmental processes, as well as the long–term effects of chronic pediatric disease on patients and their families. This two year fellowship includes clinical and behavioral training, working with a care coordination team, as well as research training, in preparation for a successful academic career.
