Since July 2009 the Division of General Pediatrics at the UW Department of Pediatrics has offered a two-year postdoctoral Quality of Care Research Fellowship directed by Dr. Rita Mangione-Smith. Through the Quality of Care Research Fellowship, fellows learn state-of-the art 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 Masters of Public Health or a Masters of Science in Health Services. The training program is funded by the Continuous Performance Improvement Department at Seattle Children’s Hospital. Support includes stipend, research support, tuition, benefits, travel, and administrative support.
