After the birth of triplets i am once again very interested in peds! it has always been my first thougth as far as occupation and i would be really happy as a peds doc-- but i am also really interested in sub-specializing. What sub-specialties can you do from a peds residency??
Neonatology--(my kids were in the nicu for 6 weeks) is the only one i can think of but i know there have to be more.

There is also a new fellowship for pediatricians interested in practicing hospital based medicine. Only a few programs offer it in the north-east, not sure about other areas. This should be a hot fellowship since the role of the hosptilist is expanding.

You can also do a fellowship in general academic pediatrics if you want to do general peds in practice and do clinical or health services research.

I think you can also do a peds rheumatology fellowship (studying JRA, juvenile lupus, etc).

one more foolish question-- if i do decide on peds and subspecializing, AND if i have a nhsc scholarship-- do i have to do the peds rotation, serve out the time required in the scholarship, and then return to finish the sub-specialty??
