The pediatric track in the hospice and palliative medicine fellowship at UT Health San Antonio adds a rich experience to the pediatric adult fellowship program, and for pediatric fellows, the program does place an emphasis on pediatric complex care training.
Along with expert bedside teaching, our faculty author and teach weekly didactic modules in the Continuity Clinic; curriculum that lays down and builds upon the foundation of general pediatrics. This enables our residents to go forth and establish themselves in a general pediatric practice or go on to multiple sub-specialty fellowships at the end of their training with us. The faculty also produces daily curriculum for the Acute Care clinic didactic sessions, engaging the residents and subspecialties to participate as well. The clinic also serves as the clinical education site for 3rd year medical students on Pediatrics Ambulatory Rotation and 4th year medical students on elective rotation in pediatrics.

Migrant and International Child Health Pathway
Designed for selected pediatric residents who are interested in improving their understanding of care for underserved children here at home and abroad. The overall goal is to train pediatricians who understand the consequences of socioeconomic conditions on migrant children and families, who recognize the impacts of such life experiences on their health, and who can take an active role in advocating for their health and well-being.
