Program Goals

The primary goal of our postdoctoral fellowship program is to train the next generation of pediatric clinician-scientists to assume leadership roles in developing innovative, high impact clinical and developmental pharmacology related approaches that will improve proper use of medicines in children and enhance pediatric therapeutics and related health outcomes of neonates, children and adolescents. Our program is highly individualized and tailored to the trainee’s professional interest and goals and includes formal training elements that provide eligibility for certification by the American Board of Clinical Pharmacology, Inc. 

Program History

The fellowship program was established in 2001 and is based in the Department of Pediatrics at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and the University of Cincinnati, College of Medicine. Our research-based fellowship program has substantially evolved and since 2011 offers a unique training experience that is part of an NIH T32 funded training program in Pediatric Clinical and Developmental Pharmacology. Our successful program is administered through the Division of Clinical Pharmacology at Cincinnati Children's in close collaboration with participating divisions and is accredited by the American Board of Clinical Pharmacology. Graduates of the program have assumed leadership positions in academic medicine and cancer therapeutic development. Learn more about the Division of Clinical Pharmacology.
