While increasing numbers of researchers are studying the complex factors that affect the health of children, fundamental issues in pediatric health care remain unresolved. The Harvard Pediatric Health Services Research Fellowship Program trains future HSR investigators to produce actionable, rather than merely explanatory research, and to develop new methods to translate these research findings into healthcare practice, policy and population health.
Graduates of the HSR Fellowship Program have become successful independent health services researchers in leading pediatric centers. Our success is a result of many factors, including:
Collaboration across Harvard institutions
The HSR Fellowship Program is a collaborative program operating across three research sites: Boston Children's Hospital, where the program is based; MGH Center for Child & Adolescent Health Research and Policy (CAHRP); and the Department of Population Medicine (DPM) of Harvard Medical School and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care. The collaborative structure of the program provides fellows with access to the broad and deep resources of the Harvard institutions.
Fellows come from general and subspecialty backgrounds. We have trained fellows from diverse fields including general pediatrics, intensive care, emergency care, anesthesiology, neonatology, general and ophthalmologic surgery, radiology, neurology, dermatology, psychiatry, genetics, gastroenterology, pulmonology, infectious diseases, hematology, oncology, endocrinology, ethics and hospitalist medicine. We have trained PhDs in nursing, psychology and public health.
The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
