Pediatric Hospital Medicine

Welcome! We are so excited that you are interested in our Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship Program.

The Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine - Baylor Scott & White Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship is a two-year program fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). We will accept 1 PHM Fellow per Academic Year.

Our program mission is to advance the field of Pediatric Hospital Medicine by nurturing the next generation of Pediatric Hospitalists through exemplary education and compassionate, high-quality, family centered care. We will ensure that patient safety, advocacy and value-based care remain critical aspects of our program through modeling, research initiatives and educational opportunities. We will be committed to both the professional and personal advancement of our fellows through mentorship, wellness, open communication, and individualized learning experiences.


Rotations will be structured into a 13-block schedule comprised of 4-week blocks to be aligned with the pediatric residents’ modified X+Y schedule. Medical-surgical unit/inpatient service will rotate between weeks with the resident teaching service, APP staffed service, and hospitalist only service. Each block will allow for enough time to establish a meaningful experience through following a panel of patients contiguously (as appropriate per rotation), having consistent supervision for service weeks to allow for well-informed feedback, allow for contiguous teaching on the resident/teaching service, and ensuring the staff physician can directly observe progress for assessment. Like the modified X+Y model, initiation of scholarship “Y” weeks would allow for fatigue prevention and longitudinal commitment to maintaining and completing scholarship pursuits.

The PHM Fellowship curriculum is designed to meet each fellow's learning needs while adhering to all ACGME standards. Fellows will acquire clinical experience, medical education experience, sufficient opportunity to pursue scholarly activity and ample procedural sedation exposure.

The primary training site will be Baylor Scott and White - McLane Children’s Medical Center while the primary community site will be Baylor Scott and White Medical Center – Hillcrest.
