Child and Family Patient Centered Outcomes Research Scholars Program
Accepting Applicants for August 2016
We are accepting applications for our Child and Family Patient Centered Outcomes Research Scholars Program. This mentored career development (K12) program for junior faculty focuses on patient centered outcomes research and comparative effectiveness research.
This K12 program supports junior faculty, who are on their way to building careers that include research directly linked to delivery systems. The funding for this program comes from the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) administered through the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). It builds on our fellowship training in the Harvard-wide Pediatric Health Services Research Fellowship, but this program is targeted at junior faculty members, rather than post-doctoral fellows. The three primary sites of the program are Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH), MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC), and the Department of Population Medicine at Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute (DPM). We link with a wide range of delivery systems and have a symposia series on key topics taking place throughout the year. The grant covers 75% of each scholar’s salary (up to a limit of $90,000) for 2-3 years, and provides additional funds (up to $25k annually) for scholars’ research development costs and individual training.
Our leadership team includes Drs. Jonathan Finkelstein (Director, BCH), Erinn Rhodes (Associate Director, BCH), Mark Schuster (BCH), Kenneth Mandl (BCH), Milton Kotelchuck (MGHfC), Karen Kuhlthau (MGHfC), Elsie Taveras (MGHfC), Matthew Gillman (DPM), Grace Lee (DPM), and Don Goldmann (Institute for Healthcare Improvement).
We are accepting applications through November 15, 2015 for positions starting on August 1, 2016. For this program, it is critical that scholars have primary interests in patient-centered outcomes and comparative effectiveness research as defined by PCORI. Applicants must have or concurrently apply for a faculty position at one of our primary sites. Please contact our Associate Director, Dr. Erinn Rhodes (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions or to request an application form.

We are a contemporary practice striving to maintain a traditional relationship with our patients and their families. We have three offices with 8 doctors and 5 nurse practitioners; however, we pride ourselves in being a big practice that seems small to our patients since we do not routinely rotate to different offices.

We round on newborns in three hospitals but do not take care of inpatients or attend C-sections. There is an opportunity to teach residents and/or nurse practitioner students for those who wish to do so. |

About Palm Beach Pediatrics
Palm Beach Pediatrics is a 30 year old pediatric practice in Palm Beach County, Florida. We have 3 offices but pride ourselves as being a large practice that seems like a small practice to our patients since our providers rarely rotate to different offices. We have a great reputation in the area, taking care of many of the other physicians' children, and get most of our patients through word of ...mouth. We see patients in one of our offices on weekends and all holidays as well as M-Th until 8pm in order to keep them from needing to go to the walk in clinics. As a large group, we are able to care for all of the basic pediatric needs and try to not refer our patients out unless really needed, ie. ADHD. We are working towards our Patient Centered Medical Home recognition and hope to achieve that by the end of the year.
