Career Development

Overview

The Department of Pediatrics is invested in the careers of its investigators. We support junior-, mid-, and senior investigators across the T0 to T4 spectrum. Career development in the Department is generously supported by the Intermountain Foundation at Primary Children’s Hospital. Support for junior investigators includes the Primary Children’s Hospital Early Career Development Award. This award is intended to provide junior investigators with a mentored research experience and to allow them to obtain preliminary data for an extramural award. The K2R2R award supports investigators who need targeted preliminary data to apply for their first or a subsequent R-level award. The Foundation additionally supports the Primary Children’s Hospital Child Health KL2 position through the Utah Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS).
