Support the Pediatric Residency Program's Educational Mission
Your financial contribution will go to support innovative and vital portions of the pediatric residency program's educational mission.

Resident Conference Attendance and Presentation Materials
Our pediatric residents regularly attend he AAP National meeting and the Pediatric Academic Society meeting.  Your donation supports travel to conferences, registration, and poster printing.

Quality Improvement Curriculum
We have revamped and improved our quality improvement training.  All second year residents attend a two-day quality improvement bootcamp conference at the beginning of their academic year to build core skills, and then work on a longitudinal group quality improvement project.  Your donation would support additional curriculum such as IHI open school registration fee and travel stipend for residents to attend the national IHI meeting.

Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics Simulation Training
We have piloted a unique new interview simulation session to give residents additional skills in caring for patients with ADHD and learning disabilities.  Your donation will allow us to continue these high quality simulation sessions.

iPad Initiative
Starting in July 2012, we have provided all pediatric residents and med-peds residents with iPads for use in their clinical work and educational support.  This initiative has allowed for residents to have quick access to the electronic medical record, realtime access to the primary literature, and use of iPads for patient education.  Your donation will allow us to continue to provide iPads for resident use.

Global Health Track
The pediatric residency program has a nationally recognized global health track.  The track involves high quality mentorship, longitudinal curriculum, and opportunity to work abroad at one of our international partner sites.  Your donation will support resident travel stipends and curriculuar development.
