Specialized Tracks

Global Health Track
The mission of the Global Health Track is to ensure that all pediatric residents receive an introduction to global child health, including principles of public health, advocacy, and clinical care of children in underserved communities both at home and around the world. The program selects two residents each year who spend considerable time through both education and international work learning the intricacies of global health. The track has established sites in Brazil and Ethiopia but also supports residents traveling to other countries. To learn more about the Global Health Track, please click here.

The Pediatric Residency Program welcomes applicants interested in research as their career goal. We have
many residents who have participated in research either as an elective or as part of the Integrated Research Pathway.
Integrated Research Pathway
The integrated research pathway (IRP) allows residents to spend a total of 11 months focusing on clinical or laboratory-based research projects of their choosing. The goals of this pathway are to attract committed young physician-scientists to pediatrics, provide mechanisms to sustain research interest, skills, knowledge and productivity during core pediatric training and offer a means for fostering transition to a physician-scientist career. Learn more about the IRP here.
Emma Mohr, participating in IRP, researches Lassa virus at the CDC.
Emory Department of Pediatrics has intramural grant funding available for residents. Typical applicants are second and third year residents, but any pediatric resident may apply.

Resident Research Projects
All residents have the opportunity to participate in research projects within both the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Emory University communities. Residents with exceptional projects are selected to present at Resident Research Day which occurs annually in the spring, with the winner receiving additional money in their book fund.
