Scholarly Activity

Fellows completing research rotations are expected to acquire the skills needed for conducting basic science or clinical investigations. The fellows will have mentored research in the lab of a Research Mentor during Years 2 and 3 of fellowship training. In addition to designing protocols and collecting data, fellows are instructed in scientific writing, data analyses, and presentation of their work at formal research conferences, departmental grand rounds, and national professional meetings. They are also encouraged to participate in Pediatric Research Day, Diabetes Retreat with Harold Hamm Diabetes Center, and a regional meeting such as PESTOLA.  The fellows must actively participate in a QI (Quality Improvement) project during their training.  This will be monitored by the Program Director and their Faculty Mentor.  Fellows' scholarly accomplishments are supervised and evaluated by their Research Mentor, Scholarship Oversight Committee (SOC), and the Program Director.  The SOC Committee will consist of their Mentor the Program Director, a section faculty member and a faculty person from an outside department.  The fellows will have their first SOC at the end of their first year.  Each additional SOC will be determined in the meeting according to the time needed to complete certain projects.
