General Academic Pediatrics Fellowship sponsored by the Division of General Pediatrics, Department of Pediatrics
Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, Wilmington, Delaware
Mission The Nemours General Academic Pediatrics Fellowship aims to provide comprehensive training in academic general pediatrics and pediatric research. Upon completion of the fellowship, our fellows are expected to be competitive for general academic faculty positions at major institutions. Most important, they should be confident in their skills to function as an academic clinician focusing on education, research, advocacy, or population health.
Tracks The two year program (60% research, 40% clinical) provides comprehensive training in general pediatrics with specific focus in the following tracks as per the fellow’s clinical interests: complex care (inpatient and outpatient), pediatric “Access” clinics (developmental-behavioral pediatrics, gastroenterology, dermatology, headache/concussion, enuresis, and obesity) and continuity clinics, or clinical and translational pediatric research. Fellows in the program will have a diverse clinical training as well as research training and research experience in order to expand their skill set and knowledge base.
Resources The fellow will have interaction with other subspecialty fellows through didactic lectures and research series training courses. Fellows will have access to the Delaware Center for Translational Research/ACCEL program at Nemours, with mentoring and research education resources. Fellows will also have the opportunity to collaborate with members of our multidisciplinary clinical teams. Fellows will have access to professional development.
Masters in Public Health An optional but encouraged Masters of Science in Public Health at Thomas Jefferson University can provide fellows with additional training.
