Welcome to the fellowship in pediatric child abuse in the department of pediatrics' division of child protection and forensic pediatrics at the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville. This program is accredited through the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, or ACGME.

Our program is part of the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville division of child protection and forensic pediatrics and works in conjunction with Wolfson Children’s Hospital and UF Health Jacksonville. This is the only child abuse fellowship in Florida and is part of the only state medical child protection team system to provide comprehensive care.

Our 3-year program offers outstanding training that prepares fellows for academic positions in child abuse. We encourage and facilitate the expansion of knowledge through our clinically-oriented training with its rich inpatient and outpatient experiences and with community partner experiences. Fellows interact with patients in a devoted child abuse center and at multiple hospital facilities, providing a very diverse patient population with a wide range of conditions. Clinical research opportunities are abundant, this center serves 6 counties and all the children within.

This is an excellent opportunity to work with all levels of child abuse in an advanced statewide system. We welcome your interest in our program.

Please explore this website for further information and feel free to contact us if you have additional questions.
