Research Training

Fellows will be given time to be involved in research during each year of the training program. Fellows will devote approximately 10% of their week to research activities. The fellow will be required to present at one national conference during each year of the fellowship and submit an article for publication. The fellow will be allowed to choose a research focus from the following options. Data sets are available for children with epilepsy, fetal alcohol spectrum disorders, congenital heart disease, and cochlear implantation. Other potential projects include investigations of neuropsychological aspects of childhood cancer, autism spectrum disorders, spina bifida, adolescent to adult transition, and genetic disorders.
