NASPGHAN Foundation/Abbott Nutrition Advanced Fellowship Training in Pediatric Nutrition

Submission Deadline: September 1, 2016

The award is expected to begin on July 1, 2017 although alternate start dates in 2017 will be considered to accommodate non-traditional academic schedules.

Pediatric nutrition is one of the fastest growing areas of scientific and clinical importance to child and population health.  To address this growing interest and to accelerate the training of pediatric experts, the NASPGHAN Foundation has partnered with Abbott Nutrition to develop a pathway for advanced fellowship training in pediatric nutrition. 

The NASPGHAN Foundation/Abbott Nutrition Advanced Fellowship in Nutrition will provide up to $80,000 in direct funding to support a year of advanced training in pediatric nutrition for a NASPGHAN member.  Applicants are expected to identify a mentor and a host nutrition research program prior to application for funding.  The fellowship must include a well-defined clinical experience as well as a focused research project. The primary objective of the fellowship is to catalyze and increase the number of highly-trained, expert nutrition clinicians, educators and scientists among the membership of NASPGHAN, as a means to improve service to our patients and the public
