Medical Training & Education in Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics

Developmental Behavioral Medical Training

Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics (DBP) faculty educate peers, fellows, residents, medical students, and undergraduate students. Teaching occurs in the classroom, clinical settings and in the context of research. 

Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics Fellowship Program

The Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics Fellowship at the University of Michigan trains future leaders in academic Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics. 

The Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics Clinical Rotation for Residents and Medical Students

  All pediatric and medicine-pediatric residents participate in a month-long developmental behavioral pediatrics rotation. Fourth-year medical students may elect this one-month rotation. The rotation includes clinical experiences in primary and interdisciplinary clinics for evaluation and management of common DBP conditions as listed under the Fellowship description. Topic-focused teaching occurs in clinics and weekly educational sessions. Visit the Pediatric Residency Program website for more information about residency programs. Our program will also offer some support for travel for medical students from other institutions who are interested in DBP. Contact the division director Dr. Barbara Felt for more information at 734-936-9777 or [email protected].

Note that during the 2020-21 year, there will unfortunately be no medical student rotations available due to restrictions related to the novel coronavirus events.
