Pediatric Fellowship Program in Occupational Therapy
The Pediatric Fellowship Program at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) is a post-professional clinical and didactic education program designed to significantly enrich the fellow’s preparation as an advanced practitioner in the field of pediatric occupational therapy. It combines opportunities for ongoing clinical mentorship with a scientific basis for advanced practice.
The LEND program is supported by a grant from the Federal Maternal and Child Health Bureau. The Occupational Therapy Department offers a fellowship within the LEND program. The OT Department’s goal is to search for an occupational therapist who demonstrates an interest in their continued learning and research in a variety of areas within occupational therapy and related health care fields. Frequently, the OT LEND fellow is considered an entry level Occupational Therapist (OT I); however, occupational therapists with work experience are also considered.
For more information about this program and how to apply, please refer to LEND program.
