Child Abuse Pediatrics Fellowship: Research
As required by the American Board of Pediatric (ABP), each Child Abuse Pediatrics fellow will complete a scholarly project during their fellowship. The fellow will have twelve (12) four-week blocks throughout the fellowship to devote to completion of this project as well as an additional three elective blocks if needed. To assist with formulating and completing this project, the fellow will choose a research mentor and a Scholarship Oversight Committee within the first six months of fellowship. More information about the requirements for a scholarly project and the function of the Scholarship Oversight Committee, see Principles Regarding the Assessment of Scholarly Activity on the ABP website.
The Medical College of Wisconsin’s Quantitative Health Sciences department provides support for research development, study design, and statistics. Opportunities for networking and collaboration with other researchers are also available through the Medical College of Wisconsin’s Injury Research Center and Children’s Hospital’s Children’s Research Institute. In addition, fellows wishing to obtain a Master’s Degree in Public Health, Bioethics, or Clinical and Translational Sciences during their fellowship may receive a subsidized tuition through the Department of Pediatrics at the Medical College of Wisconsin.
