Pediatric Hospitalist Fellowship Program

Welcome to Emory's Pediatric Hospitalist Fellowship Program at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta!

The Hospitalist program at Egleston was started by Joseph A Snitzer, III, in 1983.

The team specializes in delivering and coordinating the clinical care of hospitalized children, but also has responsibilities in medical education, quality improvement, discharge planning, and clinical research.

The Mission of the Pediatric Hospitalist Fellowship

The mission of the Pediatric Hospitalist group is to provide excellent patient care. Excellent patient care leads to important questions that arise at the bedside, from which clinical pediatric research adds growth. This desire for excellence also drives us to teach residents, fellows, physician peers, nurses, and/or other medical personnel in order to maintain the highest standards of patient care.

The Hospitalist Fellowship program was started 2006 and now under the direction of Dr.'s Anjali Kirpalani and Patricia - Lantis. It offers a two-year training for specialized care of hospitalized children. The program also includes training and experience in clinical, epidemiological, and/or quality research with mentorship. The program is strengthened through collaborations with the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention and Rollins School of Public Health.

The Goals for the Fellowship Program

The goal of the fellowship in Pediatric Hospitalist medicine is to train board certified pediatricians to become academic pediatric Hospitalists. Fellows should be stimulated to provide excellent patient care to develop a knowledge base to continue to perform relevant clinical and/or basic science research, and to become excellent teachers of medical students, residents, ancillary personnel, and future fellows. The pediatric fellowship is designed to provide opportunities to attain all these goals as well as to nurture future fellows. Fellowship Handbook
