Program Description

Welcome to the San Antonio Uniformed Services Health Education Consortium Adolescent Medicine Fellowship Program. The fellowship started in 2001 and is the largest Adolescent Medicine training program in the U.S., with the ability to train up to nine fellows (three per Post Graduate Year (PGY) class). Fellowship training is available to Pediatric, Family Medicine, or Internal Medicine residency graduates from any branch of the military service. For pediatricians, it is a three-year fellowship with one year dedicated towards research, and for internists and family medicine physicians, it is a 2-year training program with no research requirement.

Our program provides a diverse learning environment spanning the full scope of adolescent medicine care. We care for adolescents and young adults between 12 and 25, including many young active-duty service members. This makes Adolescent Medicine a unique specialty in its military relevancy. Our training program has an established curriculum inclusive of educational experiences that impact our servicemembers and dependents. Our graduates are ready to step into their role as military officers and physicians with diverse clinical backgrounds.

Our primary site for rotation occurs at Brooke Army Medical Center. However, we also work at several other sites, including Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center, Basic Trainee Medical Clinic, University of Texas Health Science Center of San Antonio, and the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, to increase our exposure to a more diverse patient population. Our primary care track is focused on routine/preventive health care of our empaneled patients

Our subspecialty track includes rotations focused on behavioral health, substance use disorders, disordered eating, transgender health, reproductive health, sports medicine, and the juvenile justice system. Fellows will work with faculty in Psychiatry, Eating Disorder specialists, Sports Medicine physicians, and physical therapy, in addition to the full complement of Pediatric/Internal medicine sub-specialists.

Our curriculum focuses on developing fellows as clinicians and as educators, mentors, researchers, and leaders. Rounding out our program experience, we have two half days a week dedicated to didactics/board prep and journal club. These training days also include coverage of professionalism, leadership, well-being, and military unique topics. Additionally, we have ample opportunity for fellows to develop their expertise in educating others through precepting residents or medical students, providing lectures outside of the program’s didactics, and guest speaker engagements to broader audiences.
