Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey


Pediatricians have an important role to play in the advancement of child health research and should be encouraged and supported to pursue research activities. Education and training in child health research should be part of every level of pediatric training. Continuing education and access to research advisors should be available to practitioners and academic faculty. Recommendations to promote additional research education and support at all levels of pediatric training, from pre-medical to continuing medical education, as well as suggestions for means to increase support and mentorship for research activities, are outlined in this statement.
