General Academic Pediatric Fellowship

The Children’s National General Academic Pediatric Fellowship combines training in research, advocacy, medical education and leadership to prepare pediatricians interested in general academic pediatrics to be experts in addressing the healthcare needs of under-resourced communities. Upon completion of the program, fellows will be well-prepared to be an academic leader able to serve 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 Center for Translational Research, within the Children’s National Research Institute, who are national leaders in the fields of general pediatrics and medical education. Fellows will also participate in a combination of clinical duties at a community-based primary care practice site, structured educational activities, research activities and an advocacy preceptorship.
