The General Pediatrics Research Fellowship, designed as a three-year training program, has demonstrated unparalleled success in recruiting and training high-quality candidates to be leaders in primary care research and in defining the primary care research agenda. This multidisciplinary fellowship focused in research in pediatric primary care attracts trainees in medicine, nursing, psychology, public health, epidemiology, and related disciplines, with cohorts of six to eight fellows in their first, second, and third years of training. Graduates have exceeded our goals and national benchmarks for publishing in peer-reviewed journals, presenting their research at national meetings, and receiving federal research awards. Graduates have benefited from the rich resources at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, and the institution’s strong level of commitment to research and training. Faculty and trainees in this multidisciplinary training program, which started in 1998, strive to improve the health of children and adolescents, reduce health disparities, and redesign systems that work better for families and the community.
