Advanced Skills Program

The Pediatrics Residency Program has developed an optional learning opportunity that allows residents to enhance their understanding and skills in a subset of academic areas. This longitudinal curriculum taps into residents’ areas of interest, and takes advantage of faculty expertise and enthusiasm, to offer a structured but flexible variety of experiences that include mentoring sessions, apprenticeship/observership, guided reading and discussion, as well as hands-on projects.

Residents are recognized at graduation for their enhanced studies in one of the nine skills domains:

  1. Bioethics
  2. Business of Medicine
  3. Clinical Informatics
  4. Health Policy
  5. Integrative Medicine
  6. Medical Education
  7. Mental Health
  8. QI and Patient Safety
  9. Health Care Disparities
