Pediatric Hospital Epidemiology and Outcomes Research Fellowship

Pediatric Hospital Epidemiology and Outcomes Research Fellowship

Clinical Futures manages the Pediatric Hospital Epidemiology and Outcomes Research Training (PHEOT) program – a two year research fellowship designed to provide physicians with training in hospital epidemiology and outcomes research.

The PHEOT program trains the next generation of clinical scientists who will help us to understand how to best measure and improve outcomes, assure patient safety, and manage costs for hospitalized children. Funded by a Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development training grant, PHEOT combines formal coursework and mentored research projects to help trainees develop expertise in comparative effectiveness research, quality measurement, severity adjustment and economic evaluation as they relate to pediatric hospital care.

Physicians who are United States citizens or permanent residents and have at least two years of postgraduate training are eligible to apply.
