The Wake Forest Academic General Pediatrics fellowship leverages our Academic Learning Health System Scholars (aLHSS) Program. The LHSS is an innovative postdoctoral training program in the emerging area of Learning Health System Science.

The fellowship program is offered through the Wake Forest University School of Medicine Department of Pediatrics in Winston-Salem, NC, and administered by the Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute and the Division of Public Health Sciences. Funded by an NIH TL1 postdoctoral training grant, the pediatric aLHS program offers not only research experience, but includes a formal 2-year program leading to a Master’s of Science degree in Translational and Health System Science (Learning Health System Track), administered by the Wake Forest University Graduate School, Biomedical Graduate Program.  

The Wake Forest General Academic Pediatric Fellowship is designed for physicians trained in pediatrics or related fields who wish to pursue an academic career related to the health and healthcare of children. In some cases, research training can be combined with clinical training in a pediatric subspecialty.
