Personalized Training Pathways

Using personalized training pathways, the program emphasizes highly individualized career development and training experiences.  

The program includes personalized training pathways in three core areas:  

  1. Implementation of Child Health Equity Initiatives, led by Sarabeth Broder-Fingert, MD, MPH
  2. Community-based Research, led by Milagros Rosal, PhD, MS 
  3. Family-centered, Equity-promoting Interventions Delivered Within Healthcare Systems,  led by Arvin Garg, MD, MPH 

Fellows choose their unique pathway nine months after starting the program. Pathways will begin in Year 2 and continue through Year 3, if necessary.  

Fellows, paired with the faculty lead for their chosen core area, have an immersive experience that includes one-on-one hour-long monthly meetings. Faculty leads identify key material for Fellows to read ahead of their meetings, these materials serve as the basis of their discussions. Faculty leads also discuss Fellows’ projects within the context of their expertise. Finally, each faculty lead provides individualized career development guidance to Fellows based on the Fellow’s career and lived experiences.
