Fellows' College

Fellows' College session topics are focused on your fellowship training year. The curriculum is designed in a longitudinal fashion presented over a three-year fellowship.  Content builds on previous material and is meant to be experienced in a progressive manner, but all sessions are open to all fellows. This allows for fellows who have shorter fellowships to access all material and to allow fellows to repeat sessions, if desired.

The curriculum is mapped to the ACGME core program requirements and shared subcompetencies. Sessions are aimed towards the fellows specific year of training but all fellows are welcome to attend any and all sessions they'd like!  We have designed a three-year, longitudinal curriculum which includes:

  • Leadership
  • Quality Improvement
  • Health Care Economics
  • Well-Being
  • Personal & Professional Development
  • Advocacy
  • Teaching
  • Evidence-Based Medicine
  • Scholarship
  • Medical Ethics

Two-hours of curriculum to be covered in the Fellows' College.

Interested in Advanced QI Training?
Packard Leader Training (PLT) is a three-day course that exposes the learner to various LEAN principles and methodologies as they are applied to healthcare. The course focuses on the application of these principles at LPCH. There is a prerequisite which we hope to offer as an on-line course. For more information please contact Sheri Nakamura RN, MSN.

Interested in a Career involving QI?
All fellows are welcome to commit to the Quality Improvement elective, which includes PLT. The goal of the Quality and Performance Improvement Scholarly Concentration is to inspire and support residents and fellows who are interested in pursuing quality and/or process improvement projects that support care delivery and improve patient health. For more information please contact Nita Srinivas, MD.
