Apply to the Research Fellowship

Thank you for your interest in the Children's Health Services Research Fellowship. This fellowship provides salary support, mentorship, didactic training and research infrastructure for trainee clinician-scientists who wish to develop their expertise in health services research. Our goal is to train fellows who can effectively transition to a career focused on NIH-funded health services research.


  • MD or DO candidates who will finish general pediatrics training before the fellowship start date
  • MD or DO candidates undergoing subspecialty fellowship training who wish to use their research time (second and/or third year of subspecialty fellowship)
  • MD or DO candidates who have complete clinical fellowship and wish to complete a PGY7 year to augment research training
  • Candidates with previous research experience or other programmatic participation (e.g., Morris Green Physician Science Development Program) indicating an interest in transitioning to a career engaged in research


Your application should include:

  • Fellowship application form
  • An up-to-date curriculum vitae
  • A brief statement describing your background, research interest and reasons for applying to the fellowship
  • One writing sample (e.g., report, published or unpublished manuscript)
  • One letter of reference

Fellowship candidates will be recruited in January of each year and selections made in March/April of that year, with a start date of July 1st to align with residency/fellowship academic year schedules.

Selection will occur by individual review and scoring of all applications by the fellowship program director and Areas of Excellence Directors. These faculty will then all meet and discuss applications, with ranking of potential fellows to offer a spot. Offers will be made immediately afterward by email, with inclusion of the relevant fellowship program director to assure adequate protected time for research will be available.
