AAP Technology Section newsletter highlights Joseph E. Robert, Jr., Fellowship


The Spring 2012 newsletter of the American Academy of Pediatrics' Provisional Section on Advances in Therapeutics and Technology features a short article authored by the Sheikh Zayed Institute's Education Director (and occasional guest blogger) Martha Houle, PhD.

Robert, Jr., Fellowship in Pediatric Surgical Innovation aims to create a new paradigm for post-doctoral education by combining coursework about the business of innovation with that of pediatric health care research.
