CAP Fellowship: Curriculum
See our Child Abuse Pediatrics Fellowship brochure for more details on curriculum.
Our child abuse pediatrics fellowship is structured to allow maximum exposure to clinical cases throughout the three years. The first year primarily consists of clinical work in the field. In this year there is also didactic education, introduction of the multidisciplinary team process, and training in court testimony. In the first year the fellow also is expected to identify a research project and to prepare and deliver child abuse lectures to students, residents, other medical audiences and investigative colleagues. Year two continues the broad-based clinical work with more focus on the research component. In the third year the research project should be completed and time is allowed for authoring of scientific papers and other academic pursuits.
