Pediatric Hospital Medicine Research

Scientific discovery is critical to our mission to help every child we serve live their best possible life. Current scholarship efforts are focused on improving and advancing child health through the domains of clinical and health services research, improvement science, and systems safety. Areas of emphasis include:

  • Acute and chronic respiratory illnesses (asthma, bronchiolitis, and pneumonia)
  • Children with medical complexity
  • Health disparities
  • Mental health
  • Medication use
  • Quality of inpatient care

Division faculty have received support from a wide variety of sources, including the Academic Pediatric Association, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institutes of Health, and the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute.

Training the next generation of investigators is also key to sustaining our discovery mission, and the division supports several programs for junior scientists, including our fellowship in Pediatric Hospital Medicine. The division also partners with the Division of General Pediatrics to lead a National Institute of Child Health and Human Development T32 post-doctoral research training program, and Quality Academy, a longitudinal quality improvement training program co-sponsored by the children’s hospital for departmental faculty and hospital staff.
