During the second year of the Pediatric Urology Fellowship, the fellow is exposed to a wide variety of basic science research in the Pediatric Urology Lab, part of the Cincinnati Children’s Research Foundation. The lab’s current research focus is on the relationship between the CNS and the lower urinary tract and how stress can induce changes in bladder function and morphology.
The clinical fellow also spends time on several elective rotations, which may include:
- Pediatric nephrology
- Neonatal intensive care
- Pediatric surgery
- Pediatric imaging
In addition to the basic science component and electives, second-year fellows have the option to audit a MPH course at the University of Cincinnati. This opportunity will give fellows valuable exposure to outcomes research.
