The Division of General Pediatrics offers an academic general pediatrics fellowship program designed to prepare fellows for a career in clinical investigation. Vanderbilt has an exceptional environment for education, training, and professional development. Our Fellowship Program has a strong track record of producing high-quality academic researchers who garner K awards, successfully transition to independent grant awards, and establish successful careers as independent investigators.
We are committed to offering exceptional didactic and mentored research experiences to equip fellows with the knowledge and skills needed to become leaders in clinical research. Fellows conduct their research under the guidance of an established mentor with access to unique populations of vulnerable children. Most fellows enroll in the Master of Public Health Program (MPH) or the Master of Science in Clinical Investigation (MSCI) at Vanderbilt unless they have equivalent training.
We consider applicants who have completed an accredited Pediatrics residency program and are board-certified or board-eligible as defined by the American Board of Pediatrics. Individuals with an interest in pursuing a research career in academic general pediatrics will be given the highest priority. Additional information and application guidelines can be found on our website.
