The Outreach Programs tier of the Office of Academic Training and Outreach Programs (ATOP) is leading the way in the delivery of research-centric programs that produce leaders in pediatric healthcare. Outreach Programs offers flagship student internships such as The CHOP Research Institute Summer Scholars Programs (CRISSP) for undergraduates and the CHOP Research Internship for Scholars and Emerging Scientists (CHOP-RISES) for high school students. In addition, we host events throughout the year at CHOP and in the local community that showcase research and medicine. These include Discovery Day, a day-long celebration of science for local high school students held annually at CHOP, and the Philadelphia Science Festival, a city-wide event offering science and discovery opportunities for families throughout the Delaware Valley. Collectively, these efforts demonstrate the relevance of science in our daily lives and showcase the breadth of STEM-M careers at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

Outreach Programs also initiates and delivers programs that foster collaboration and integrity in research within the CHOP community. Examples include the monthly Faculty Luncheon series, the annual Scientific Symposium, and the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Training Program. The RCR program includes a formal training requirement and seminars on research ethics that are open to the community. Our office also aids in the assignment and tracking of research training requirements and works to identify knowledge gaps and opportunities to integrate technology to streamline training efficiency.

We welcome opportunities to partner with our colleagues and external collaborators to continue to build a community that celebrates research. See how you can help shape the future leaders in child health and wellness by contacting us at [email protected].
