Pediatric Scientist Development Program

Frontiers in Science 

alba

Dr. Valera Hudson and Dr. Jonathan Alba

The Frontiers in Science program was established in 1987. That year also marked the launch of the Pediatric Scientist Development Program (PSDP) to prepare North American pediatricians for clinician-scientist careers. Each year, select Pediatric Department Chairs invite promising pediatric residents to attend the AMSPDC meeting. There, they attend presentations by exceptional scientists/investigators, including PSDP graduates to help inspire and interest these residents in pursuing investigative careers of their own.
