Over the course of the Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship, the fellow is expected to formulate a research question relevant to pediatric hospital medicine, design and implement a research study and analyze the results. The fellow is expected to present the findings at a regional or national meeting and submit them for publication in a peer-reviewed journal. Research fundamentals will be taught at the monthly fellows’ conference. More advanced information and skills are attained through completion of graduate coursework.
Additionally, fellows will have the opportunity to complete a quality improvement project during their fellowship training through longitudinal quality improvement educational curriculum that is composed of live workshops and online modules.
