The New York University School of Medicine is pleased to announce that we are accepting applications for July 1, 2019 for our Academic General Pediatrics - Fellowship in Primary Care Research. The primary care research program prepares trainees for careers as academic physician-researchers in primary care pediatrics or medicine and confers a Masters of Science in Clinical Investigation degree upon successful completion of the program. Academic General Pediatric positions within this research program will be listed in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) fall specialty match process. Applications by pediatricians to our program are due by October 12, 2018; the deadline for submitting choices in the fall specialty match is November 28, 2018.
In this interdisciplinary, 2-year, HRSA-funded fellowship program, the Departments of Pediatrics, Population Health and Medicine collaborate to prepare physicians for careers in primary care translational research with a focus on disease prevention, health promotion, behavioral health, patient-centered care and improved access to care, particularly targeting urban poor populations. Graduates of the program will contribute to the public’s health through research, scholarship, and program leadership. The program is intended primarily for persons who have completed residency training in Pediatrics or Internal Medicine; however, postdoctoral PhD candidates without medical training but with an established focus on research in primary care are also eligible to apply.
In our innovative Masters of Science degree program, fellows develop content mastery through courses including Research Methods, Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Health Services Research, Medical Informatics, Clinical Trial Design, and Grant Writing. Fellows participate in Research in Progress seminars, Journal Clubs, and Integrative Seminars. Fellows design and complete a mentored research project in primary care that leads to presentations at local and national meetings, manuscripts for publication, and grant applications. NYU School of Medicine, with its academic affiliates of Bellevue Hospital, VA NY Harbor Healthcare System, Tisch Hospital, and its close links with the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and numerous community partners, provides a fertile laboratory for mentored research. Applicants with a training background in medicine must have completed an accredited residency program, and be eligible for an unrestricted medical license in New York State. Fellows will receive a stipend and a complete benefits package. Full tuition is covered for the Masters of Science degree program, along with an allowance for books, travel, and other related program expenses. Members of under-represented/disadvantaged minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply. Pediatricians, who will enter the primary care research program as Academic General Pediatric fellows, will also engage in a modest amount of research-related clinical practice at Bellevue and/or the Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital.
