Virtual Training for Pediatric Professionals

Research is a critical asset for children’s hospitals focused on improving care delivery. The need to continuously advance new insights that influence pediatric health care makes building health services research capabilities a priority.

Few health services training resources exist to support physicians and analysts with an interest in this type of research; many professionals learned these skills on their own. The Health Services Research Academy through Children's Hospital Association offers a formal, pediatric-focused education program to develop the skills for a career in health services research.

Participants will benefit from:


Additional Benefits for Capstone (Tier 3) Participants
