The training program has a strong emphasis on clinical research training, with fellows functioning as integral members of the research team. We also have opportunities for translational/bench research. Under the guidance of a faculty mentor, fellows will design and run their own projects, present their findings at regional or national meetings, and prepare a manuscript for publication. Fellows are expected to identify a research project and a mentor early in the first year. The fellow will have increasing protected research time throughout the three years of training.

The Scholarship Oversight Committee is responsible for overseeing and assessing the progress of the fellow towards meeting the American Board of Pediatrics requirements for scholarly activity. The faculty and other research mentors teach and guide the fellows in experimental design, data collection, and analysis. During the first year, the fellow will use his/her research time to identify a research question, review literature, meet regularly with their mentor, and write up the project proposal. The fellows’ research time during the second and third year is dedicated to conducting the research project. Each fellow regularly presents a report of his/her research project to the Scholarship Oversight Committee. We anticipate that fellows will present results at a national meeting and submit a manuscript to a peer-reviewed journal during their third year of training.
