Pediatric Clinical Obesity and Nutrition Fellowship

Pediatric Clinical Obesity and Nutrition Fellowship

The University of Colorado School of Medicine's Department of Pediatrics and Children's Hospital Colorado offer a Pediatric Obesity and Clinical Nutrition Fellowship program. The goal of the fellowship is to provide physicians who are board certified or eligible in pediatrics or family medicine with in-depth training in pediatric obesity and clinical nutrition that will prepare them for a career in clinical or academic medicine.

Program strengths include:

  • Superior academic subspecialty training in a professional, collegial atmosphere.
  • Teaching by national and international experts across multiple disciplines. Our fellows work with faculty across numerous fields including Nutrition, Endocrinology, Cardiology, Gastroenterology, and Pulmonology. Faculty offer a broad range of complementary clinical and research expertise.
  • One-on-one working relationships between fellows and supervising faculty.
  • Broad exposure to clinical nutrition both inpatient and outpatient, with both common and rare diagnoses.
  • Opportunities to obtain in-depth training in each fellow’s specific area of interest.
  • Long-standing fellowship program with more than 15 years in existence. Fellows join the Section of Nutrition at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, which was the 1st independent section of nutrition in pediatrics in the United States.
  • Participation in the education of residents and medical students.

The dedicated time of the fellowship enables trainees to develop the knowledge and skills needed to pursue a range of career options including academic medicine and inpatient and outpatient pediatric clinical care.
