The Pediatric Critical Care and Trauma Scientist Development Program (PCCTSDP) is a national faculty training program that develops successful pediatric critical care and pediatric trauma physician scientists. The goal of the PCCTSDP is to increase the number of highly trained, successfully funded, and sustainable pediatric critical care and pediatric trauma physician scientists who will do research to enhance the scientific understanding, clinical management, and long term outcome of critical illness and trauma in children. The PCCTSDP is funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) in the Pediatric Trauma and Critical Illness Branch.
