Our department has a formal curriculum and a forum for fellows to meet on a weekly basis. The Yale Pediatric Fellows Conference meets weekly and features presentations on choosing research projects, grant writing, research methods, biostatistics, and career development. In addition, this series features talks from senior faculty, who share their routes to academic success. All fellows participate in the Investigative Medicine Program and take courses in biostatics and principles of clinical research. Fellows can pursue advanced training in basic biology, biostatistics, clinical research, molecular biology through courses offered at the Yale School of Medicine.
