Julie Kristine Wood, DO

Thank you for your interest in our fellowship program at Wake Forest University School of Medicine. One position per year is offered to physicians who anticipate completion of residency training in either pediatrics or medicine-pediatrics. 

The section of Pediatric Hospital Medicine has 16 full-time faculty and two advanced practice providers who care for a diverse patient population with a wide variety of diseases and clinical severity.  We admit patients from the ER, newborn nursery, and from the community, to three acute care floors and an intermediate care unit (ICU step-down).  We believe that the size of our section and department is perfect for a PHM fellowship.   We are small enough to have a family-feel while large enough to have varied research, leadership and scholarly interests outside of our clinical work. The educational and clinical curricula provide a balanced training experience that will prepare fellows for a career in Pediatric Hospital Medicine.

Integrated into clinical work are opportunities for scholarly and leadership training.  Our faculty participate in a range of academic work including clinical and translational research, education, quality improvement and patient safety, biomedical informatics, and advocacy.  We are eager to mentor PHM fellows and help develop an academic area of focus.  Under the leadership of our chair, Dr. Lindsay Thompson, advocacy efforts and research on social drivers of health and improving the care for ethnic and racial minorities are academic strengths of the Atrium Health Wake Forest Department of Pediatrics.  

In summary, we hope you will join us at Wake Forest!  We are committed to providing a world-class training experience while improving the health and well-being of the children and families we serve.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me via email at jkwood@wakehealth.edu.
