The Morris Green Physician Scientist Development Program was created to identify and support pediatric residents and fellows who want to develop careers as pediatric researchers, physician scientists and future academic leaders. The program supports physician scientists-in-training with an annual $3000 stipend, and mentorship and seminars that exceed the training and resources provided in a typical residency and fellowship program.
The program is open to pediatricians with MD, MD/PhD, MD/MPH or MD/MS degrees who have some advanced research training or research experience. Applicants should have a clear focus on academic pediatrics and on developing a research component of his/her career. Program participants meet with their mentor at least quarterly but may meet more frequently.
