Fellows in the traditional track will usually complete a scholarly activity in clinical/translational or bench research. Fellows may complete this activity in a number of broad areas of focus in general or HIV-related infectious diseases, immunology, microbiology or related fields.
Opportunities for research related to global health and epidemiology/infection control also are possible. Fellows will work with infectious diseases (ID) attendings to identify research projects and mentors within and/or external to the ID Division, such as, but not limited to: Children’s National Research Institute, the National Institutes of Health, George Washington University and Walter Reed Medical Center. Rich opportunities, state-of-the-art research facilities and infrastructure support are present on-site at the Children's National Research Institute for the pursuit of a wide range of clinical, basic science, epidemiologic and outcomes research.
Our Clinical and Translational Science Institute with pediatric Clinical Research Center is integrated within Children's National Hospital. This helps to facilitate close relationships between investigators and clinicians, and research by physician scientists.
