Mission The Nemours General Academic Pediatrics Fellowship provides comprehensive training in academic general pediatrics and pediatric research. Upon completion of the fellowship, our fellows are expected to be competitive for general academic faculty positions at major institutions. Most important, they should be confident in their skills to function as an academic clinician focusing on education, research, advocacy, or population health.

Fellows in the program will have a diverse clinical training, research training and experience in order to expand their skill set and knowledge base.
Resources The fellow will have access to the following:
Interaction with other subspecialty fellows through didactic lectures and research series training courses;
Mentoring and Research education resources at the Delaware Center for Translational Research/ACCEL program at Nemours;
Collaboration with members of our multidisciplinary clinical teams; and

Nemours is committed to improving the health of children. As a non-profit children’s health organization, we consider the health of every child to be a sacred trust. Through family-centered care in our children’s hospitals and clinics in Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Florida, as well as world-changing research, education and advocacy, Nemours fulfills the promise of a healthier tomorrow for all children — even those who may never enter our doors. Nemours began more than 70 years ago with the vision of Alfred I. duPont to improve the lives of children and to do whatever it takes to prevent and treat even the most disabling childhood conditions. Today, through our children’s hospitals and health system, we directly care for 250,000 children annually in Delaware Valley and Florida, including families who travel from across the country and world to see our specialists — treating every child as we would our own. We also reach beyond the walls of our hospitals and clinics to be a voice for children on a national and international level, and to lead the way in prevention, intervention, education, and research. Nemours is growing to better serve the children and families in our ca...re. We have 1.1 million square feet of space currently devoted to providing children’s healthcare or under construction, all designed with significant input and advice from our patients and families.
