Academic General Pediatric Fellowship

Introduction:

The Academic General Pediatric (AGP) Fellowship at Stony Brook University Medical Center (SBUMC) is accredited by the Academic Pediatric Association. This program is one among the first six programs in the nation to be accredited. One new fellow is selected every year. The AGP fellowship program is primarily focused on the development of research skills. The AGP Fellowship at Stony Brook University Medical Center is designed to develop the next generation of academic generalists by providing them with expertise in the: 1) planning and execution of patient-oriented and health services outcomes research; 2) development of state of the art educational curricula, strategies and scholarship to pediatric trainees; and 3) clinical care of pediatric patients in the inpatient and/or outpatient settings. The overall goal of the program is to prepare a cadre of pediatricians to become the next generation of physician-researchers and academic leaders in primary care pediatric research.

Special Features:

Medical Care Quality Scholar

This certification requires additional didactic and administrative training as well as the capstone project in Quality Scholarship. It will provide pediatric hospitalists with the knowledge and skills needed to rigorously evaluate and develop programs to improve quality indices and trends in patient care outcomes. Stony Brook University Medical Center has an exceptionally strong Quality Management Program that has an excellent infrastructure and systems for monitoring and improving patient care quality outcomes.

Masters in Public Health (MPH)/Masters in Science (MS)

 At the completion of the fellowship program, the AGP fellow is expected to graduate with a masters-level degree (MPH or MS) with an option to advance to PhD degree candidacy. A Masters in Public Health provides enhanced professional education in epidemiology, biostatistics, behavioral science, health care organization, environmental and occupational medicine and cultural competence. There is also the option to obtain a PhD or MS in programs in Population Health and Clinical Outcomes Research with an emphasis both in Clinical Investigation (i.e., patient-oriented research) and Population Health and Clinical Outcomes Research (i.e., health services and clinical outcomes translational-oriented research).

Coordinated in conjunction with the Department of Preventive Medicine’s MPH and MS Programs in Population Health and Clinical Outcomes Research (PHCOR) and the Quality Management Program at SBUMC, this AGP Fellowship Program will provide an optimal environment for the research training of pediatric primary care physicians who have completed the clinical components of a pediatric residency and who are early in their academic career journey.
