General Pediatrics Research

We are recognized for our strength in community and population-based research, as well as our focus on family-centered care, quality improvement, environmental health, and underserved populations.

Preparing Trainees for Careers in Child and Adolescent Health Research

This is primarily a research-oriented fellowship. We emphasize both fundamental and specialized research skills relevant to each fellow’s individual research interests, including preparation of grant proposals and publications and presentation of scientific data.

All fellows are paired with a senior research mentor at the associate professor or professor level who complements the trainees’ interests and skills. Fellows also receive mentorship from their customized Scholarship Oversight Committee, an interdisciplinary advisory committee comprised of three to five individuals who meet semi-annually to foster the fellow’s scholarly progress and career development. Fellows are given biostatistical support and receive generous annual monetary support for their research projects, conference travel, and tuition for advanced training.

Fellows with clinical expertise will devote at least 80 percent of their time to research activities. Non-clinicians will devote 100 percent of their time to research activities.

The fellowship program has been continuously federally funded by a National Research Service Award (NRSA T32) from the Health Resources Service Administration since 1998. In 2013 the program received Academic General Pediatrics (AGP) Fellowship Accreditation from the Academic Pediatric Association.

Fellows enjoy living in the city of Cincinnati, earning stipends based on levels stipulated by HRSA while receiving a comprehensive benefits package.
