Yale Pediatric Fellowships Scholarly Pathways

Yale offers all fellows four unique scholarly pathways to guide professional development throughout the years of training.

The tracks include:

  1. Investigation (clinical, translational, and laboratory-based research)
  2. Quality Improvement and Patient Safety
  3. Medical Education
  4. Global Health
Although scholarly activities begin during the first year, most fellows will enroll in a pathway in their second year of fellowship training. Fellows are permitted to enroll in more than one pathway if their scholarly activities are relevant (for example, combining global health with quality improvement/patient safety, medical education, or investigation). Fellows should work with their mentors to select the pathway and activities that will be most beneficial when considering their individual career goals and aspirations.
