Pediatricians interested in specializing in pediatric critical care will receive training under qualified academic practitioners in both the clinical and and basic science of critical care medicine.

The Division of Pediatric Endocrinology attend patient rounds daily, as well as case management, didactic courses and research conferences.

Hematology-Oncology

In April 2008, the division received accreditation for a three-year fellowship training program in pediatric hematology-oncology.

This three year fellowship offers opportunities in clinical, educational and research activities to develop fellows into successful members in academic neonatal-perinatal medicine.

Pediatric Hospice and Palliative Medicine

The pediatric track in the hospice and palliative medicine fellowship at The University of Texas Health and Science Center at San Antonio adds a rich experience to the pediatric adult fellowship program, and for pediatric fellows, the program does place an emphasis on pediatric complex care training.
