Trainees without an MPH or similar degree have the option of completing MPH degrees, choosing from several areas of concentration, including Epidemiology, Maternal and Child Health, Community Health Education, and Public Health Administration and Policy; or other degrees of interest, such as the Master of Human Rights (MHR) degree program.

 

Trainees work with identified mentors on primary care research projects in areas of their interest. Areas of expertise developed by past trainees include identification and management of psychosocial problems in primary care, reducing health disparities among vulnerable youth and under-resourced populations, prevention of adolescent risk behaviors, including violence involvement, bullying, substance abuse, and unsafe sexual activity, overweight prevention and management, primary care for children with special health care needs, health care for incarcerated youth, and foster care health.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Accredited by the Academic Pediatric Association, the Academic General Pediatrics (AGP) Fellowship at Stony Brook University (SBU) is designed to develop the next generation of academic generalists by providing them with expertise in the: 1) planning and execution of patient-oriented and health services outcomes research; 2) development of state of the art educational curricula, strategies and scholarship to pediatric trainees; and 3) clinical care of pediatric patients in the inpatient and/or outpatient settings. The overall goal of the program is to prepare a cadre of pediatricians to become the next generation of physician-researchers and academic leaders in primary care pediatric research. It will build upon institutional strengths in outcomes and health services research, and existing didactic platforms in clinical and research strengths in primary care.  Coordinated in conjunction with the Department of Preventive Medicine’s MPH and the Quality Management Program at SBU, this AGP Fellowship Program will provide an optimal environment for the research training of pediatric primary care physicians who have completed the clinical components of a pediatric residency and who are early in their academic career journey.  This new program will promote career development through flexible and multidisciplinary mentoring combined with didactic course work linked to the overall objectives of the program that will be customized to support the specific career development needs and research project interests for each trainee. At the completion of the fellowship program, the AGP fellow is expected to graduate with a masters-level degree (MPH or MS). In addition, each fellow will complete a mentored research program in Health Services/Clinical Outcomes Research or in Quality Scholarship. In addition to the formal coursework, the fellow will participate in weekly pediatrics research works-in-progress meetings and monthly pediatric research presentations. The fellow will also have the opportunity to participate in the research conferences of our partners and collaborators in the Graduate Program in Public Health, the Department of Preventive Medicine, the Center for Excellence in Wireless Information Technology (CEWIT), and the Center for Medical Humanities, Compassionate Care, and Bioethics at Stony Brook University. Possible future academic career options for program graduates include development and leadership of pediatric complex disease management programs, careers in health services/clinical outcomes research or clinical science investigation; educational program development; leadership of QA/QI programs and/or administrative leadership.   

Fellows have an option to receive an added certification as a Medical Care Quality Scholar through participation in the Quality Scholarship in Hospital Medicine Initiative. This certification requires additional didactic and administrative training as well as the capstone project in Quality Scholarship. It will provide pediatric hospitalists with the knowledge and skills needed to rigorously evaluate and develop programs to improve quality indices and trends in patient care outcomes. Stony Brook University has an exceptionally strong Quality Management Program that has an excellent infrastructure and systems for monitoring and improving patient care quality outcomes.
