Health Services and Quality of Care Research Fellowship

Program Overview

Since July 2009, the UW Department of Pediatrics and Seattle Children’s Hospital has offered a two-year postdoctoral Health Services and Quality of Care Research Fellowship. Through this fellowship, fellows learn state-of-the art health services and quality improvement research methodologies with close mentorship from outstanding, experienced faculty in the Department of Pediatrics, Seattle Children’s Hospital and Seattle Children’s Research Institute. The fellowship includes required course work in the UW School of Public Health and Community Medicine and fellows have the opportunity to earn a Master of Science in Health Services. Up to 20% of the fellow’s time will be spent in clinical work (either inpatient or outpatient, depending on fellow’s interest); the remaining time will be dedicated to mentored research and coursework. The fellowship is funded by the Continuous Performance Improvement Department at Seattle Children’s Hospital. Support includes stipend, research support, tuition, benefits, travel, and administrative support.
