Research experience is an essential part of the training of subspecialists. In addition, the ACGME program requirements for research in pediatric subspecialties must be met:

Each fellow must design and conduct a scholarly project in his or her subspecialty area with the guidance of the fellowship director and a designated mentor. The program must provide a scholarship oversight committee for each fellow to evaluate the fellow’s progress as related to scholarly activity. The scholarly experience must begin in the first year and continue for the entire period of training. Time must be adequate to allow for the development of requisite skills, project completion and presentation of results to a local scholarship oversight committee established for this review.

See also the examination admission requirements (research requirement) on the website for the American Board of Pediatrics.

To comply with the research requirements for certification by the American Board of Pediatrics, each fellow must perform an independent research project under the supervision of one or several faculty members. Fellows' research projects are reviewed during the monthly emergency medicine outcome research committee meetings and scholarship oversight committee meetings. Fellows are free to select a topic of interest within the available resources of the emergency medicine department and pediatric emergency medicine divisions at both UF College of Medicine – Jacksonville in Jacksonville and Wolfson Children’s Hospital/Baptist Medical Center. Fellows may carry out more than one independent project.

The University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville encourages resident/fellow research through the availability of Dean’s Fund Research Awards and an annual Research Day.
