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.

Program highlights

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:

  • a highly structured curriculum and research environment;
  • personalized mentoring
  • a collaborative environment
  • access to expert methodologists and to the vast, multidisciplinary resources and faculty of the Harvard institutions.

FELLOWSHIP LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES

  • Individualized mentorship on a minimum of two studies.

  • Coursework at the Harvard School of Public Health leading to an MPH in Clinical Effectiveness.

  • Program seminars, including guest and faculty presentations, research skills sessions, discussions of pertinent publications and works-in-progress sessions.

  • 80-90% research, 10-20% clinical.

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.
