The Children's Mercy Kansas City Pediatric Otolaryngology Fellowship Program accepts one fellow per year for a one-year program. The curriculum is based out of Children's Mercy Hospital and blends outpatient and inpatient clinical training, with time allowed for research activity.
Pediatric Otolaryngology at Children's Mercy and the University of Kansas continues to grow. There are currently eleven pediatric otolaryngology faculty who are augmented by three neurotologists. Children's Mercy is a regional 367-bed tertiary referral center and Level I Pediatric Trauma Center which includes 41 Pediatric ICU and 87 Neonatal ICU beds. With 33 sections and divisions and more than 400 pediatric faculty members, we provide one of the most stimulating academic and clinical environments in the country.
The fellow will see patients in their own outpatient clinic, as well as serve as the team leader for the inpatient team. They also have the opportunity to complete two research projects that will be submitted for national presentation and publication.
The fellowship also supports a unique opportunity to participate in medical mission work in underserved countries.
