Course Description

The Fellowship in Pediatrics course is a 9 months online course followed by a 4 weeks clinical rotation in pediatrics in the United States. It enables the students to study a broad range of basics, translational and clinical science related to child health, including major strengths in infectious diseases, vaccines, developmental immunology and hematology, neurosciences, and gastroenterology.

This course helps in understanding evidence-based diagnostic and treatment plans for children by formulating appropriate testing and treatment strategies for children. It helps you understand how to calculate and administer accurate drug dosages. The course will also cover the aspects of child psychology and behavior management, which differs significantly from adults during treatment procedures.

Learning complex medical concepts in the traditional didactic textbook and lecture format can be alienating for students. It prevents the opportunity to apply this knowledge clinically. Fellowship in Pediatrics incorporates a Case-Based Learning Approach within the Medvarsity Learning Framework to address this gap in medical education. Additionally, we’ve partnered with McGraw Hill to ensure that the students are exposed to relevant and credible content with the latest advances in the course specialty through a variety of case studies, books, videos, and other learning materials.

The 4-week rotation in the US familiarizes and acculturates an International Medical Graduate (Indian Medical Students/ Doctors) to the practice of medicine in an American clinical setting, and provides international students an introduction to American Medicine as they will experience it in a hospital-based residency program.

This program benefits medical students/doctors applying to residency programs in the United States, providing excellent clinical experience and an overview of the US healthcare system. Accepted students are encouraged to explore their areas of interest in ongoing research and initiatives through recent publications or specific projects. Both the doctor and the student collaborate to pursue suitable research projects tailored especially to individual interests during the program.

At the end of each rotation, the supervising physician will provide you with feedback based on a standardized American Medical Association (AMA) clinical evaluation format. A complimentary review and critique of your resume and personal statement, including tips and suggestions for improvements, will be provided. Based on the performance your preceptor will write you a letter to support your goal of achieving a residency.
