The Pediatric Fellowship Programs at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine / Jackson Memorial Hospital offers 8 specialized programs, accredited by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education, leading to certification in their Sub-Specialty by the American Board of Pediatrics. The central idea of the Pediatric Fellowship Programs at UM/JMH is one of growth and development. We believe that a physician becomes a well-trained specialized pediatrician gradually and by encompassing all 3 areas of academic medicine -- research, teaching, and clinical service. At the heart of our training is a focus on developing well-rounded physicians who embrace the core values of every Holtz Children’s Hospital employee: integrity, compassion, accountability, respect and excellence.​
