There are seven great Fellowship Programs within Harbor Pediatrics which offer an opportunity for pediatricians to continue their training in a more specific field of their choice.
Pediatric Child Abuse
The Department of Pediatrics offers a three year accredited fellowship in Child Abuse Pediatrics for physicians who have completed an ACGME-accredited pediatric residency and are eligible for certification by the American Board of Pediatrics.
The goal of our three-year Fellowship program is to train competent ID specialists through a broad-based experience in research, teaching and clinical infectious diseases. Our southern California location provides tremendous exposure to a variety of immigrant and through-traveler populations enabling diverse clinical and research opportunities.
The Division of Neonatology and the Neonatal-Perinatal Subspecialty Training Program are based at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. The Harbor-UCLA Neonatology Program is a fully-accredited three year fellowship, with 15 months dedicated to clinical experience and the remainder to research opportunities.
The Los Angeles County/Harbor-UCLA Medical Center Pediatric Critical Care Medicine Fellowship is a three-year program fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. Our goals are to provide the trainee with the knowledge and skills to care for critically ill children and to enable the trainee to make contributions to the field of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine.
The goal of the fellowship of Pediatric Emergency Medicine is to train specialists in pediatric emergency medicine who will enter a career in academic emergency medicine or pediatrics.
Endocrinology & Metabolism
The Division of Pediatric Endocrinology at Harbor UCLA Medical Center offers a three year research and clinical training program for graduates of pediatric residency programs. The program is ACGME-accredited for one position per training year.
The goal of the program is to train physicians in Medical Genetics with the expectation that the trainee will become a leader in their fields, excel in research and academics, and be an outstanding clinician.
