Assistant Professor of Pediatrics & Pediatric Hospitalist
University of Vermont

MUSC's pediatric hospital medicine fellowship provided me with real insight into what it means to be an academic clinician. I was provided with the protected time to not only obtain my Masters in Public Health but also to pursue numerous scholarly pursuits in QI, healthcare utilization, pathway development, and high-value care. While making incredible friendships and professional/networking relationships that I will take with me for the rest of my life, I was able to explore academia and decide whether I want it to be a part of my career going forward. I am excited for the next stage of my career where I will be an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and a Pediatric Hospitalist at the University of Vermont.

Assistant Professor of Pediatrics
Children's Hospital of San Antonio - Baylor College of Medicine

My pediatric hospitalist fellowship experience at MUSC allowed me to take the time to explore aspects of clinical and academic practice that I did not have time to pursue within residency. Through fellowship seminars, self-directed learning, and outstanding mentorship, I was able to develop my research skills, from brainstorming a research idea all the way to drafting a manuscript for submission. Additionally, I partnered with a medical student and fellow to create a low-fidelity simulation regarding medical errors, and piloted it for implementation into the third year pediatric clerkship curriculum. I was able to hone my teaching skills through both the Clinician as Educators and Foundations in Teaching and Learning certificates. The Masters in Public Health degree supplemented the education that I was receiving both on and off the inpatient units, allowing me to integrate public health principles into my daily clinical practice. With my experience in fellowship, I hope to continue to pursue my love for medical education, as well as take a deeper dive into quality and safety initiatives.

Assistant Professor of Pediatrics
University of Alabama at Birmingham

My fellowship experience was exactly what I needed following residency—an opportunity to explore research methodologies, cultivate academic/teaching techniques, and sharpen clinical skills under the mentorship of faculty that were invested in my development as an academic clinician.  Through the fellowship, I was able to take my own research project from inception to completion as a manuscript publication in a top tier journal of my choice.  I feel comfortable not only performing the appropriate statistical analysis of my own research data but also confident in critically reviewing study design and methodologies presented in the literature at large.  With the experience gained from the fellowship, I have found success in participating in several national research projects/manuscripts, help establishing our own clinical fellowship program, and mentoring fellows in their respective research careers
