  • Dear Potential Applicant:

    Thank you for your interest in the general academic pediatrics fellowship at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and Rhode Island Hospital/Hasbro Children's Hospital. Our fellowship provides a background in fundamental research principles, biostatistics and clinical epidemiology with both didactic and practical experience. In addition, it provides experience in teaching (didactic and experiential) and consulting responsibilities with regard to the training of The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University students and residents in pediatrics. There is also a component of direct and autonomous patient care.

    The fellowship is quite flexible and is designed to meet the educational needs of the individual participant. For example, several fellows have elected to pursue interests in adolescent medicine and one of our previous fellows has remained with us as director of a teen-tot clinic. Others have had interest in behavioral/developmental pediatrics or health services and their research has been focused in these areas.

    At the present time, we have seven academic generalists (in addition to four clinician-educators) all of whom either have PhDs or further subspecialty training in general academic pediatrics, behavioral/developmental pediatrics, child psychiatry and/or public health. Every major pediatric specialty is represented in the department of pediatrics and fellows from all of the pediatric specialties participate in a core curriculum on research sponsored by the department. As well, there would be opportunities to take additional course work on The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University campus, including for the MPH degree, as some of our previous fellows have opted to do.

    The State of Rhode Island is the smallest state in the Union yet boasts some of the most beautiful coastline and nautical recreational activities in the United States. We are within a one-hour drive to Boston and a three-hour drive to New York City. Rhode Island has a temperate climate and four distinct seasons.

    Please contact us for formal fellowship application materials and information about our program and our hospital, or explore our information online.

    Thank you for your interest in our program.
