General Academic Pediatric Fellowship
The Children’s National Medical Center General Academic Pediatrics Fellowship trains community-based general academic primary care pediatricians who will be experts addressing the health care needs of underserved communities by serving as a bridge between the community and academic organizations. The program is structured over three years to allow adequate time for mastery of the skills necessary for completion of a scholarly project. Fellows will work closely with members of the General Pediatrics Division and the Children’s Research Institute, national leaders in the fields of general academic pediatrics and medical education. Fellows participate in a combination of clinical duties at a community-based primary care practice site, structured educational activities, research activities, an advocacy preceptorship and a clinical administration preceptorship.
Fellows have the opportunity to obtain a Graduate Certificate or Master of Public Health from The George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services. Additional offerings include a Graduate Certificate in Clinical Research, Graduate Certificate in Medical Education or a Master of Public Health.
