Fellows will learn the essential tools and skills of research methodology that are necessary to develop an independent research career. The training program includes coursework, seminars and two mentored research projects.

Opportunities for additional training are also supported. Trainees who enter the program without a master’s degree will complete the requirements for a master’s of science in epidemiology or master’s of science in clinical and translational research. Other training experiences include quality improvement research and improvement science, medical education and biostatistics. General Pediatrics Fellows also experience weekly training sessions on relevant topics and curriculum in a small group environment that allows for peer interaction, feedback and mentoring.
