Welcome to

Developmental Medicine



In partnership with CERC, Developmental Medicine offers robust and in-depth training programs for fellows and residents. 

Fellows in CHAM’s Developmental Medicine program hone their clinical skills, contribute outstanding research and help children with developmental difficulties live their lives to the fullest. Supported by an engaged interdisciplinary staff, this three-year program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) provides fellows with training across all aspects of developmental-behavioral pediatrics DBP.

Beyond simply preparing fellows for subspecialty certification, we train them to lead the field in both academic and clinical settings. Training includes research and advocacy experiences in which fellows help make a difference in the communities of our diverse population.

Leadership in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND)

The Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND) program at CERC is one of 43 LENDs across the nation working together to provide graduate-level, hands-on training to professionals in DBP and other disciplines.
