New Fellows Orientation 2021

Dear Incoming Fellows,

We are thrilled that you have chosen to pursue your subspecialty training at Stanford and are excited to welcome you as we begin our journey together.

As an introduction, we are the Fellowship Leadership Team (FLT) and are part of the Office of Pediatric Education (OPE). Our departmental team, in partnership with your divisional Program leadership, provide core curriculum, resources, and support to ensure that you reach your fellowship goals while fostering a robust learning community to enhance your fellowship experience. We are confident that your time here will be exceptional, and our role is to make sure you have access to the tools, content, and mentors necessary to be successful, and that you finish fellowship with the skills to be a leader.

Please note the date for the required New Fellow Orientation on Tuesday, July 6 and Wednesday, July 7, 2021. We will follow-up with you in the coming months with more details about this 2-day event.

In the coming weeks, we will assign all incoming fellows with a peer who will be able to provide support in transitioning to fellowship at Stanford. This will be a peer outside your divisional program to broaden your network. In the meantime, please feel free to contact us or your Program leadership with any questions or issues.

We also encourage you to explore our website for information on our other offerings and the benefits of training at Stanford. Here are links to specific topics you may find helpful.

Our doors are always open, so please let us know if you have any questions or need anything.
