The Division of Primary Care holds a monthly “Research in Progress” meeting where the fellow can present research in all stages for timely feedback. All NCH fellows participate in a Core Didactic Curriculum “Fellows’ College” geared at scholarship, health equity and healthcare systems, and professional development.

• Quality-Improvement Science – Fellows will participate in the implementation and evaluation of at least one mentored quality-improvement project. The Division of Primary Care has won awards in innovative quality improvement and NCH is a national leader in the field.

• Educational Excellence – Fellows may elect to teach medical students or residents and participate in curriculum development and evaluation.

Innovation at NCH:

·         Healthy Neighborhoods Healthy Families – Nationwide Children’s Hospital is a leader in innovation in pediatric population health. The Healthy Neighborhood Healthy Families (HNHF) Initiative was begun over 10 years ago, recognizing that neighborhood, safety, educational opportunities, and health care associability all affect health and well-being. HNHF provides opportunities for Academic General Pediatric fellows to explore the impact of this innovative community programming on child health.

·         Partners for Kids (PFK) – Additionally, NCH is a national leader in providing comprehensive care to children and adolescents through an Accountable Care Organization (ACO). Partners for Kids (PFK) is one of the largest pediatric ACOs in the country and includes more than 333,000 children in 34 counties in Ohio. PFK provides opportunities for Academic General Pediatric fellows to learn about ACOs and to study the impact of population management on child health outcomes.
