Clinical Observations

Fellows are expected to visit a clinical setting twice a year. LEND has a variety of clinics that are available for fellows to join for observation.

LEND team: A monthly interdisciplinary evaluation offers fellows the experience of participating in or observing a large team assessment of a child who is currently being treated at Boston Children's Hospital. This allows fellows to learn how to work with colleagues across disciplines and value the contribution each specialty makes towards understanding and treating a patient.  

ASK (Advocating Success for Kids) is a clinical seminar series precedes each of the monthly team evaluations. These seminars address a broad range of clinical issues ranging from detailed review of specific conditions to ethical principles.

Down Syndrome Program: This program offers comprehensive evaluations to children with Down syndrome from newborn to 22-years old. The Thursday morning team offers a multidisciplinary approach including a developmental pediatrician, speech pathologist/feeding specialist, physical therapist and audiologist.
