The UCLA CDI Institute, in the Department of Pediatrics at the Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA, offers several child health research training programs:

Child Health Research Career Development Award (CHRCDA) Program (K12)

The Department of Pediatrics at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA is the recipient of the National Institutes of Health, Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, Child Health Research Career Development Award (CHRCDA) Program (K12). The UCLA CHRCDA is committed to training Pediatric subspecialty physician-scientists with an emphasis on basic and translational research towards understanding pediatric diseases.

Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholars Program

For more than three decades the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholars Program has fostered the development of physicians who are leading the transformation of health care through positions in academic medicine, public health, and other leadership roles.  The goal of the program is to integrate scholars' clinical expertise with training in program development and research methods to help them find solutions for the challenges posed by the U.S. healthcare system, community health and health services research.

Translational Research in Pediatric Science at UCLA TRPS (T32)

The Department of Pediatrics and the UCLA Children's Discovery and Innovation Institute at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA is dedicated to training pediatric subspecialty physician-scientists to focus on fundamental understanding of pediatric diseases and conduct research that will lead to novel approaches for treatment. The overall objective of the UCLA T32-TRPS is to increase the number and impact of pediatric physician-scientists engaged in child health related research that can translate to the bedside. With guidance from program faculty, T32-TRPS trainees select scientific mentors from well-established investigators in pediatrics and other clinical and basic science departments.
