Educational and Professional Training
The Department of Pediatrics offers continuing professional development programs, including Pediatrics Grand Rounds.
The Institute provides training for graduate students in clinical and developmental psychology, as well as in other fields, such as social work and education. It also offers research opportunities for Pediatric, Psychiatry, and Radiology residents and fellows. There are research opportunities for undergraduates as well.
Work and study opportunities for medical students considering a specialty in Pediatrics also are available at the Institute. The program is sponsored either through Rutgers' research office or the Department of Pediatrics. Students traditionally work for eight weeks on research projects in progress at the Institute and complete a formal abstract of their research, which subsequently is published or presented at a research conference. The students have the opportunity to observe and study children in a laboratory setting, and they are exposed to data collection and analytic techniques.
