Providing outstanding research training is a major objective of our program with many scholarship and research opportunities available for fellows. The UI Carver College of Medicine (CCOM) and the College of Public Health have cutting edge basic and translational science program infrastructure and faculty. In 2009 the CCOM received $212.5 million in external funding and ranked 11th among public medical schools in NIH funding. Our department is among the top departments of pediatrics in the U.S. in terms of NIH research funding, and our College of Medicine has strong basic science departments.
We have excellent opportunities for research training and experience within the Division of Pediatric Critical Care, but we also encourage our fellows to explore training opportunities in research laboratories elsewhere in the Department of Pediatrics or within the Colleges of Medicine and Public Health. Our current fellows each receive research training/mentoring from a combination of two or more faculty members with expertise/interest in diverse but overlapping areas.
