SIG Description


Academic Fellows SIG was formed with the intent of creating a community of physicians who plan to remain in academics-both general pediatrics and all specialties. Having a forum of fellows with similar career goals will enable focus to be placed on areas of interest that are applicable to a career in academics. Young faculty less than 3 years out of fellowship would be encouraged to participate in an advisory capacity.

SIG Mission/Goals:


The goals of the Academic Fellows SIG will include fostering networking opportunities, research collaboration, mentorship ability, skills to function as independent researchers, advocacy and leadership training, career development and camaraderie among academically oriented fellows in pediatrics. These goals will be attained through Academic Fellows SIG meetings at PAS and potentially Regional meetings along with the development of an online community. Through this online community, resources common to the needs of all academic fellows can be compiled with the potential for webinars and additional learning activities. As core to the mission of the APA, the SIG would strive to encourage leadership in education, research, patient care and advocacy as fellows develop into young faculty and beyond.



Other content:

As the SIG's focus is promoting and supporting a career in academic pediatrics, fellows from all specialties are welcome to join. This includes but is not limited to: Allergy/Immunology, Cardiology, Child Protection, Behavior/Development, Endocrine, Gastroenterology, Neurology, Pulmonology, Sports Medicine, General Academics, Rheumatology, Emergency Medicine, Adolescent, Critical Care, Neonatology, Nephrology, Infectious Disease, Hematology/Oncology, Hospitalists, and Environmental Health. Developing the leadership of the SIG is ongoing; please contact Sara Slovin or Tracey Wilkinson if you are interested in a leadership role.

October 2015 Newsletter Article


Greetings from the Academic Fellows SIG co-chairs! We have been happy to see a recent increase in the number of announcements for academic fellowships in pediatrics. The relative increase in fellowships will likely be a boon to our field, as more and more Pediatricians are being supported in their involvement in public health, quality improvement, research and advocacy. We have noticed, too, that not all of these are categorized as "General Pediatrics” or "Accredited” programs, which may make it difficult for us to communicate with the fellows in different programs.

We are committed to serving the needs of ALL TYPES of Academic Fellows in the APA, and in the future would like to provide more opportunities for communication and interaction within the SIG between PAS meetings. As such, were hoping to get some help from you in making sure that our list of fellowships is complete. Specifically, we are asking:

      1. Non-APA accredited Academic Fellowship Program Directors or fellows, please:
            a. Contact us so that we can make sure you are on our lists
       b. Provide us with a brief summary, or your posting, for your fellowship. We hope to make this             information more readily available to current fellows, and, if you wish, to trainees.

      2. APA accredited Academic Fellowship Program Directors or fellows, please:
            a. Ensure that the information listed on the APA website is current and complete:             https://academicpeds.org/education/education_AGP_AccreditedPrograms.cfm

Feel free to send us any of your other thoughts on the fellows SIG and how we can best meet the needs of ALL TYPES of Academic Fellows in the APA.
