Fellows enter a well-established curriculum that covers the basics of clinical research design and implementation, biostatistics, ethics in research, grant writing, and scientific writing among other scholarly topics. They also participate in the Divisional Research in Progress seminars and Journal Clubs.
Scholarly work pathways within the fellowship help guide fellows’ efforts so they are well positioned for their post fellowship dream job and a career directed by their passions and interests.
Fellows work closely with their mentors and scholarly oversight committee to choose a scholar pathway and to design and conduct a scholarly project(s).
Medical Education Pathway
Fellows interested in careers focused on medical education and/or educational research are eligible for this pathway, which includes a master of education degree or a certificate of medical education. In addition to refining their precepting and teaching skills in both outpatient and inpatient clinical settings, fellows will complete a scholarly educational project with mentorship from leaders in the field. They will also have the opportunity to participate in the Advanced Educator and Faculty Development Symposium. Fellows will be encouraged to join the Graduate Medical Education Committee, present their work at the Thomas F. Boat Lectures, Pediatric Academic Societies Annual Meeting, and the Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine Annual Conference and to participate in the Association of Pediatric Program Directors meetings.
