In conjunction with clinical programming, the PAG fellow will also obtain skills necessary to perform clinical outcomes-based research in Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology. The Children’s Hospital Colorado and the University of Colorado-Department of OB-GYN are committed to providing the essential foundation to successfully complete a novel project during fellowship and continue successful research production after graduation. Our Director for Research, Stephen Scott MD, MPH, and Associate Director for Research, Karen Hampanda, PhD, will provide mentorship in generating research ideas and developing study designs. Dr. Kendra Hutchens, PhD is a Senior Instructor in our PAG Section and works exclusively with the PAG Department and will guide fellows through the logistics of clinical research including IRB protocol completion, study coordination, patient recruitment, data collection, statistical analysis, along with poster and manuscript writing. In addition to Dr. Hampanda’s statistical and teaching expertise, the PAG fellow will also have access to hospital-wide supports for research. Children’s Hospital Center for Surgery was established to support all surgical subspecialties and has developed the Research Outcomes in Children’s Surgery (ROCS) Team. ROCS can assist the PAG fellow from idea inception to project completion, with additional support in research education, methodology review, complex statistical analysis, and editing. As part of our research program, fellows will be expected to develop a novel project, with the goal of submission for national or international presentation and manuscript submission to a peer-reviewed journal. Our long-term goal is to see rigorous and well-designed research production expanding nationally to all institutions that our fellows choose to join upon fellowship completion.
