Fellowship in Pediatric Child Abuse

Fellowship in Child Abuse Pediatrics

Fellowship in Child Abuse Pediatrics (CAP) is a 3 year specialty program accredited through the American Board of Pediatrics and the ACGME, established July 1, 2011. The CAP program is designed to teach proficiency in evaluating and managing children at risk of or experiencing any form of abuse or neglect. The goal for participating fellows is to acquire expertise and skills in clinical practice, teaching, investigative research, and administrative functions related to child abuse pediatrics, so that graduating fellows will have sufficient expertise to act as independent consultants in the field, capable of pursuing an academic or clinical career. Candidates must be board certified or board eligible in General Pediatrics. All fellows are required to sit from the Child Abuse Pediatrics sub board examination upon completion of the fellowship.

The fellowship is not presently recruiting new fellows.
