Pediatric ambulatory fellowships are postresidency training programs designed to prepare pediatricians to deliver, organize, and evaluate primary pediatric care. A survey of the members of the Ambulatory Pediatric Association details the funding, structure, content, and outcome of these training programs.

The Ambulatory Pediatric Association has recently approved guidelines for the standards and content of these fellowship programs.
