Pediatrics Residents as Teachers Program  

Curriculum Design and Evaluation 

Residency Program Curriculum Committee

 Residents at all levels of training play an integral role in curriculum development by serving as members of the Curriculum Committee.  Resident representatives gather comments from classmates about strengths and weaknesses of each rotation and present their findings at monthly committee meetings.  As unmet educational needs are identified, residents provide suggestions for change.  Resident input is essential to the process of continuous quality improvement for the educational program.

General Pediatrics Curriculum Redesign Project

As an offshoot of the work of the Curriculum Committee, in collaboration with faculty in the Division of General Pediatrics, residents are working to refine the General Pediatrics component of the training curriculum.  The effort began with a local needs assessment and a review of national guidelines and curriculum outlines from other institutions.  Phase 1 of the project led to a revamping of the weekly noon conference series in General Pediatrics.  Phase 2 will focus on developing quick-learning modules for use in continuity clinic.  The project’s ultimate goal is to develop an explicit, integrated curriculum that taps the rich variety of learning opportunities at each training site.
