Meet Our Faculty
The General and Community Pediatrics Research Fellowship program has been directed by Kristen Copeland, MD, Professor of Pediatrics, since 2009. Kimberly Yolton, PhD, Professor of Pediatrics, has been the Associate Director since 2014. Drs. Copeland and Yolton, both graduates of the Fellowship, provide complementary expertise to ensure learning and progress for MDs and PhDs. The Fellowship Advisory Committee is chaired by the Program Director, Dr. Copeland, and will include faculty mentors and at least one member of the community who are actively involved in primary care research and the community’s needs. In addition to the fellowship Director, Associate Director, and Advisory Committee the program has a vigorous team of interdisciplinary mentors affiliated with the program. These faculty members each have a strong track record of publishing and obtaining external grant support.
