Academic General Pediatrics Fellowship
The Academic General Pediatrics Fellowship offers pediatric providers the training to design, implement and evaluate original health services and clinical epidemiology research. The fellowship is intended primarily for general pediatricians, but is open to pediatric providers from all subspecialties who are interested in performing broad-based pediatric research to understand the healthcare needs of children and to improve children's health and healthcare delivery. The goal of the fellowship is to prepare trainees to work as independent researchers in academics, government, healthcare systems, foundations or industry.
The Academic General Pediatrics Fellowship is a two-year program funded by the Health Services and Resource Administration (HRSA) as part of a National Research Service Award (NRSA) training grant. The fellow will receive strong mentoring in developing research proposals, identifying research advisors and collaborators and refining research skills. Formal didactic training in biostatistics and epidemiology is provided through coursework at the University of Pennsylvania's Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (CCEB), culminating in receipt of a Master's in Clinical Epidemiology or Health Policy.
