Children's Health Services Research Fellowship
The Indiana Children's Health Services Research Fellowship Program is a 2 year program committed to training high-quality clinical investigators dedicated to improving child health. The program is funded by a National Research Service Award (NRSA) from the Agency for Health-care Research and Quality (AHRQ) and leverages long-standing, exemplary programs in health services research and medical informatics in the Regenstrief Institute for Health Care to create a training environment for preparing leaders in children's health services research.
The Indiana Children's Health Services Research group recognizes the importance of maintaining clinical skills throughout training. Each fellow will engage in ½ to 1 day per week in an ambulatory-care setting. The clinical experience will be tailored to the fellow's needs and career objectives.
During the two year experience, each fellow will be expected to attend, and present at, the weekly Work-In-Progress sessions of the Indiana Children's Health Services Research group. This meeting is attended by the entire section, and other investigators across campus interested in children's health services research. Fellows will also be encouraged to attend Work-In-Progress sessions of the Regenstrief Institute for Health Care.
Each fellow will receive funds to attend two professional meetings a year. One of these meetings will be the annual Pediatric Academic Society meeting. The other meeting will be chosen by the fellow and his or her primary mentor.
