The NYU Population Health Science Scholars Postdoctoral Program, supported in part by a HRSA NRSA T32 Primary Care Research Training award, is a 2-year research training program for MDs and PhDs. The program prepares scholars for academic careers and leadership at the interface of health care delivery and health services research. Scholars graduate with the methodologic skill, institutional savvy, and social capital to bridge the gap between real-world, health care delivery systems and the communities they serve. Fellows conduct mentored research with faculty in the Departments of Population Health, Pediatrics, and Medicine. They can complete NYU’s Masters of Science Degree in Clinical Investigation, or take methodologic courses tailored to their learning needs. Under NIH NRSA T32 rules, “the individual to be trained must be a citizen or a noncitizen national of the United States or have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence at the time of appointment”. The starting salary for postdoctoral research trainees at NYU is $70,000. The salary range listed is for full-time employment and does not include incentive compensation or benefits. Actual salary may not fall within the listed salary range; consideration will be made for experience, training, hospital/community need, and other factors.
Pediatricians who are accepted into the Population Health Science Scholars Program may serve as fellows in the Academic Pediatric Association-accredited NYU Department of Pediatrics Fellowship in Academic General Pediatrics, devoting up to 25% time in clinical work in pediatric primary care and the newborn nursery at Bellevue Hospital. The salary range for Academic General Pediatrics Fellows at NYU combines the postdoctoral research trainee salary with additional compensation for clinical activities, and is equivalent to the institutional salary range for clinical subspecialty fellows at the PGY4 level and above, currently $91,160- $101,760.
Scholars spend at least 75% time conducting mentored research with a focus on primary care and population health. Research education ranges from enrollment in a core set of courses for the Population Health Science Scholars Program to enrollment in the full NYU Grossman School of Medicine Masters of Science Degree in Clinical Investigation. Additional elective courses are available in the Medical School and University, according to each scholar’s individual learning plan.
Pediatricians accepted into the Academic General Pediatrics Fellowship will spend 25% time delivering and supervising care in the Bellevue Pediatric Ambulatory Care Clinic and the Bellevue Newborn Nursery. Fellows will also be scheduled to lead case-based and didactic teaching conferences and gain experience as clinical preceptors.
The Population Health Science Scholars Program is open to applicants with an MD or PhD degree, and applicants must be eligible for enrollment in the HRSA NRSA T32 grant program. Under NIH NRSA T32 rules, “the individual to be trained must be a citizen or a noncitizen national of the United States or have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence at the time of appointment”.
Pediatricians must have a New York State Medical License and DEA certification, and must be board-eligible or board-certified in Pediatrics.
