Division of Adolescent/Young Adult Medicine | Fellowship Training

The Adolescent Medicine Fellowship Training Program at Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH), Harvard Medical School, consists of a comprehensive clinical and research experience spanning three years. Also known as the Boston Leadership Education in Adolescent Health (LEAH) Program, we are one of the seven federal training grants in the United States for adolescent health, funded by the Maternal Child and Health Bureau to train physicians (from Pediatrics, Internal Medicine, and Family Medicine), nurses, psychologists, social workers, and nutritionists.

This program aims to:

  1. Train physicians for careers in academic medicine through clinical, teaching, advocacy, and research activities.
  2. Prepare Adolescent Medicine physicians for leadership positions in academic medicine and public health.
  3. Work toward the improvement of the health status of adolescents and young adults and the reduction of health disparities through partnerships with other professionals, teams, and agencies.
  4. Improve family- and youth-centered, culturally competent, community-based care for adolescents and young adults.

We accept applications through ERAS and participate in the NRMP Pediatrics Subspecialty Fall Match. Each year the program accepts two first-year fellows.

VIRTUAL INTERVIEWS: For the current fellowship application cycle (positions starting July 2022), all fellowship interviews will be held virtually, in accordance with hospital policy and national consensus guidelines.
