Faculty, senior fellows, and staff of the Division of Pediatric Infectious Disease are fully committed to the education of our fellows. As a reflection of this commitment, first year fellows are granted these two additional benefits:

  • During the fall, fellows have approximately two weeks of dedicated study time immediately before the Pediatric Board Examination. The fellow's only clinical responsibility during this time is their weekly continuity clinic and advanced preparation for clinic with their assigned mentor.
  • The University of Utah and the Department of Pediatrics maintains subscriptions to board review materials such as the PREP series. All these resources are available to fellows to facilitate study for General Pediatrics board certification.
