Consistent with the ACGME requirements all fellows are expected to complete at least one scholarly activity work product. A Scholarship Oversight Committee (SOC) is in place to review all projects. Fellows have the opportunity to develop projects with a variety of research mentors within the core neonatal faculty or with any other faculty at the University of California, San Diego. Projects are chosen based on the interest and career goals of the fellow.
Recent fellows have been successful in writing grant proposals and in collaborating with fellows from other institutions. Multiple opportunities exist for attending scientific meetings and presenting the work when appropriate.
