Message from the Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics Fellowship Program Director

Thank you for your interest in the Indiana University School of Medicine Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics fellowship. We are very excited about the breadth and depth of developmental experiences available to our fellows. We have enthusiastic faculty with a broad array of interests within the field of developmental-behavioral pediatrics. We use a multidisciplinary model of care for families and have the privilege of working with a diverse team of subspecialists in related fields throughout Riley Hospital, our primary clinical site, and the Indiana University system.

Our program is an ACGME accredited three-year training experience that prepares graduates in the diagnosis, treatment and counseling of children with a wide variety of developmental and behavioral challenges. Graduates are prepared to assume leadership roles in advocacy, research and teaching.

Riley Hospital is one of the top ranked children’s hospitals in the United States and is Indiana’s only comprehensive children’s hospital. As such, we care for children from throughout the state of Indiana and neighboring states. As a fellow in our program, you have an opportunity to explore and work with children and families with a broad array of diagnoses, backgrounds and needs.  You participate in the provision of optimal care for all Hoosier children.

I look forward to answering any questions you may have about entering this fellowship program.  I wish you much success in your journey to becoming a Developmental-Behavioral pediatrician.
