Fellows’ Association Steering Committee

The Fellows’ Association Steering Committee (FA) is a small committee of current fellows that provide peer-related support, networking and collaboration to all subspecialty trainees at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. The FA is advised by Gail Slap, MD, MS, associate chair for Fellowship Training for the Department of Pediatrics, and supported by the Office of Fellowship Programs.

On a monthly basis, the FA sponsors educational lunch-time seminars that cover topics common to fellows and instrumental in meeting some of the program curriculum requirements from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

  • How to give a successful presentation
  • Contract negotiations: The do's and don'ts
  • Retirement planning and investments
