Scholarly Activity

We believe that engagement in scholarly work is integral to the success of a pediatrician, necessary to advance the field of medicine and provide the best care possible for our patients.  An exciting part of our residency curriculum is participation in a mentored scholarly project, which can include traditional research, QI, advocacy, and/or medical education. Dedicated research time is available to residents, and many residents present and publish their work at local and national venues.  The skills learned in these projects translate to the bedside, as our residents practice evidence-based medicine, teach patients and their families, improve their own practice, and advocate for the health of children. 

Academic Environment - Pediatric faculty members are actively engaged in a variety of scholarships, including QI, advocacy, and both clinical and educational research. Wake Forest School of Medicine recently renewed their Clinical and Translational Science Award from the NIH to encourage collaborative clinical research. This provides significant support, including statisticians and research coordinators, to enable projects by trainees and junior faculty.

Our projects cover a wide range of topics, as demonstrated by some of our recent extramural funding.
