NASPGHAN Invites Applications for Nutrition Advanced Fellowship in Pediatric Nutrition

The mission of the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition (NASPGHAN) is to be a world leader in research, education, clinical practice, and advocacy related to pediatric gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition. To advance that mission, the society welcomes applications for the NASPGHAN Foundation/Abbott Nutrition Advanced Fellowship.

To address the growing interest and  accelerate the training of pediatric experts in child health, the NASPGHAN Foundation has partnered with Abbott Nutrition to develop a pathway for advanced fellowship training in pediatric nutrition. Through the fellowship, a single grant of $72,000 will be awarded to support a year of advanced training in pediatric nutrition. Possible areas of study include but are not limited to fetal growth and neonatal nutrition; typical development of feeding skills/behaviors and feeding disorders; nutritional aspects of eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia; malnutrition and failure to thrive; nutrition education; nutrition in specific systemic diseases or clinical states such as cystic fibrosis, liver disease, intestinal failure, and organ transplantation; nutrition support; community nutrition; nutrition epidemiology; energy homeostasis; nutrition and the microbiome; micronutrient homeostasis; nutrigenomics; obesity; breast milk and breast feeding; and basic laboratory nutritional science.

To be eligible, applicants must be an MD or DO within ten years of their GI fellowship training and a member of NASPGHAN in good standing.
