Children's Mercy offers a three-year, ACGME-accredited fellowship in Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics. Our program provides a broad-based, comprehensive clinical, educational and research experience for the developmental-behavioral fellow. We are committed to high-quality patient care enhanced by academic and research endeavors.
The overall goal of the program is to train pediatricians for an academic career in developmental-behavioral pediatrics. Upon completion of the training program, fellows will be eligible for board certification in developmental-behavioral pediatrics.
Our faculty includes eight developmental pediatricians, eight psychiatrists, more than 50 doctorate-level psychologists, psychometricians, board-certified behavior analysts, social workers, and nurses.
Fellows are given the opportunity and resources to pursue research and quality improvement, and complete a scholarly and QI project before the end of their fellowship.
