Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is strongly committed to the career development of our trainees. We’ve been very successful in helping young physicians become productive and independently contributing investigators. Explore opportunities with us for pediatric research.
Outstanding Support Capabilities
Our investigators are experts in the areas of clinical, translational, and basic science research. Underlying basic science themes include developmental biology, the study of normal and altered growth, and differentiation of tissues.
The Research Foundation has put core support capabilities in place for both basic and clinical research that will allow young investigators to successfully engage in projects, with or without extensive research experience. These core capabilities include:
- Transgenic mouse facility
- Protein analysis
- Morphologic assessment
- State-of-the-art animal facility
- Imaging research facility
- Biostatistics section
- Clinical effectiveness research capability
- Epidemiologic expertise
- An NIH-funded Clinical Research Center
- An academic research organization that facilitates pharmacologic clinical trials and other studies involving human subjects
If you’re interested in an academic career and research experience (basic science, clinical, education), you will be paired with a faculty mentor and will be encouraged to develop an individualized curriculum. This will allow you to become an excellent clinician and maintain your research skills. A unique internal grant, the RISE Award, has been created to facilitate resident research and acquisition of funding.
In addition to the individualized residency Research Pathway, residents also have the opportunity to pursue an intensive research pathway through the American Board of Pediatrics: The Integrated Research Pathway and the Accelerated Research Pathway.
