Pediatric Hospitalist Fellowship Program

Welcome to Emory's Pediatric Hospitalist Fellowship Program at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

The Hospitalist program at Egleston was started by Joseph A Snitzer, III, in 1983. The original members were Joe Snitzer, Gerald Reisman, and Jackie Galloway. Dr. George Brumley was the Department Chair of Emory Pediatric Care Foundation (Emory-Children’s Center) at the time. It is one of only six pediatric hospitalist fellowship programs in the nation.

The three team members set out to build a team of physicians now called the Hospitalist, to aid and relieve the primary care physicians of inpatient care and hospital rounds. The other main focus of the team was the bedside teaching of the Pediatric Residents and the Emory University Medical Students. The other role was to admit and manage patients of pediatric sub-specialist who did not have adequate manpower to have admissions on their service but could act as consultants. Children's Healthcare of Atlanta is one of the few hospitals in the area that has a full-time Pediatric Hospitalist program.

Information for current pediatric hospitalist fellows and fellowship candidates can be found on the Emory University Department of Pediatrics website.
