Pediatric Surgical Fellowship - Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children
Train with some of the region’s very best pediatric general surgeons — in a two-year, pediatric surgical fellowship training program at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children. Our hospital’s Division of Pediatric Surgery is offering this program in affiliation with Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University .
The goal of the fellowship is to give individuals who have completed an accredited general surgery residency advanced knowledge and training in the management and surgical treatment of newborns, infants and children.
Our Fellowship Program
This fellowship will help you prepare for certification by the American Board of Surgery, and is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
The Pediatric Surgery Fellowship aims to:
