Our mission is to develop pediatrician-scientists through an individualized six-year program that combines residency and fellowship. Our trainees embody excellence in care, inquiry, and leadership.
Our vision is to be the leader in developing pediatrician-scientists dedicated to improving child health through discovery.
We are looking for candidates who possess a proven track record of interest and skill in discovery in a broad set of scientific disciplines - MD, PhD graduates as well as others with significant research experience in clinical basic science.
The curriculum for the Pediatric Scientist Residency Program track is focused on mentoring, educational conferences, and development of the resident's skills.
A key component of the PedSDP is a longitudinal curriculum that is designed to facilitate mentoring experiences, integrate scientific management topics and develop individual leadership skills. These goals will be accomplished through:
The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, the Burroughs Wellcome Fund and the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine have partnered to form a new Physician Scientist Incubator to enrich the pool of MD-only (rather than MD-PhD) physicians who lead basic research laboratories. Residents and Fellows seeking careers built on preclinical research can apply for competitive Burroughs Wellcome Scholar positions supported by the Incubator. The Burroughs Wellcome Scholars receive laboratory biostatistics training, technical expertise consulting as needed, executive coaching (workshops and nine individual sessions of career and resiliency coaching), transactional and leadership skill training, and the opportunity for technician support on return to clinical training post research. In addition, the program provides tuition and travel support, a time management bonus (restricted to personal, non-academic time demands), and up to two years of stipend support for those not supported by other mechanisms, such as, training grants.
The overarching goal of the Pittsburgh Innovation in Collaborative Training of Residents alliance, or PICTOR alliance program, is to create the next generation of physician scientists by promoting research in residency.
The PICTOR alliance program:
The PedSDP is a flexible track providing key experiences in mentoring, administrative fundamentals, and leadership development. Candidates can pursue an Integrated (IRP) or Accelerated Research Pathway (ARP) to provide more research time during residency (IRP) or fellowship (ARP). Preferential fellowship acceptance at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh programs is provided with extra training opportunities beginning in the intern year.
