Fellows participate in outpatient and inpatient care throughout the duration of their fellowship.
- Our inpatient care is a busy eating disorder/ malnutrition unit at Teas Children’s Hospital (TCH) Medical Center campus, caring for patients requiring medical stabilization and weight restoration. We also provide consults for mental health and reproductive health.
- The “on call” or “on service” schedule is devised as an administrative function of the second-year fellow. Fellows evenly split the call year. See sample schedule
- Call is always from home and, occasionally, fellows have to come back in at night. First call is handled by a resident with fellows and attending backup is always available.
- Each fellow has a continuity clinic in which they see their own panel of patients. The continuity clinic typically begins within 3-6 months of starting fellowship. The clinic is at the TCH subspecialty adolescent medicine clinic where fellows see mental health, reproductive health, eating disorder and weight management diagnoses, frequently with an overlay of other chronic illnesses.
- Other outpatient clinics include adolescent faculty clinics and the Teen Working on Wellness adolescent weight management program at TCH medical center location.
- Additional 3-year longitudinal experience at Covenant House Texas, a homeless shelter.
Required electives during the first year are the Baylor Teen Health Clinic school-based health clinic and reproductive health clinics.
