Pediatric Injury: For Researchers and Health Care Providers
Safe Kids USA is nationwide network of organizations working to prevent unintentional childhood injury. Safe Kids educates families, provides safety devices to families in need, and advocates for better laws to help keep children safe, healthy, and out of the emergency room.
Medical Rehabilitation Research Infrastructure Network (MRRIN) is funded through the NICHD's National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research (NCMRR) with additional support from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) and the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering. The MRRIN builds research infrastructure in medical rehabilitation by providing investigators with access to expertise, courses and workshops, technologies, and other collaborative opportunities from allied disciplines such as neuroscience, engineering, applied behavior, and the social sciences.
The NICHD-supported Pediatric Critical Care Scientist Development Program (PCCSDP) is a national faculty training program that develops successful pediatric critical care physician scientists. The goal of the PCCSDP is to increase the number of highly trained, successfully funded, and sustainable pediatric critical care physician scientists who will do research to enhance the scientific understanding, clinical management, and rehabilitation of critical illness in children.
The NICHD-supported Rehabilitation Medicine Scientist Training Program (RMSTP) provides research training, mentorship, and career development support for those physiatrists committed to developing productive careers in academic medicine and research. The ultimate aim of the RMSTP is to increase the number of rigorously trained, extramurally competitive, and scientifically productive faculty members in physical medicine and rehabilitation departments who can contribute to the continued development of physiatric research specifically and rehabilitation science in general.
