Pediatrics residency ( categorical NRMP 1203320C0) supports both the Integrated Research Pathway and the Accelerated Research Pathway. In the ARP, the timeline is similar to Internal Medicine, with two years of Pediatrics Residency, 1-2 years of subspecialty training , and three years of protected research time. The Integrated Research Pathway is available and offers with 11 months of research time, but PSTP trainees will undertake far more research during their protected research time. PSTP residents are also offered the opportunity for up to 20 weeks (5 blocks of 4 weeks) of research . The overall residency program accepts 15 categorical residents per year. Interested trainees should contact [mailto:email@example.com Yatin Vyas, MD, MBBS], Director of the Pediatrics PSTP.
The department is highly active in the science of pediatric diseases. One highlight is the University of Iowa Child Health Research Career Development Award ( CHRCDA), an NIH-sponsored K12 career development award designed to support protected research time for physician-scientists in pediatrics. The program, established in 1990, has helped 40 junior faculty launch their careers<ref>[https://medicine.uiowa.edu/pediatrics/research/nih-chrc-k-12-program CHRCDA K12 Program]</ref>.
