Characteristics of Our Fellows

There are nine Fellows enrolled in our Fellowship for the academic year commencing 2017. We welcome applications from board-eligible/board-certified graduates of ACGME-accredited programs. Fellows must become board certified in pediatrics during their Fellowship in order to be eligible for the Pediatric Critical Care sub-board.

All Fellows commit to scholarly activity in our program, and all enter the program with some interest in pursuing a career in academic medicine. Some have had extensive research experience prior to entering the Fellowship, but for many this will be a new focus of training. Our current group of Fellows is conducting research in epidemiologic study, procedural sedation, health care disparities, infectious disease, and medical education. Past graduates have completed highly successful research in basic science, translation science, clinical research, quality assurance, respiratory failure physiology, cellular mechanisms of heart failure and others. It is highly encouraged that the Fellow completes a research project in an area of significant personal interest to them that they can then carry forward after Fellowship training if they so choose.
