Observership Program

The Observership Program at Boston Children’s Hospital provides knowledge of best practices to improve pediatric care worldwide and promote a collaborate environment for exchange of ideas. Observerships are informal learning experiences and do not constitute formal training or patient contact. Observerships are offered to healthcare providers across a number of departments and divisions. As part of the curriculum, visitors may observe clinical activities and procedures; attend daily rounds, lectures, seminars, and other interdisciplinary conferences occurring in the Hospital.
