This section details specific aspects of the Core Curriculum, Educational Conferences, and Elective Experiences. In accordance with the ACGME and American Board of Pediatrics, we provide all of the essential requirements for residency. The curriculum includes key experiences for all pediatricians, and we have developed rotations like the Community/Dyson rotations to go above and beyond the core requirements.
We supplement excellent clinical experience with educational conferences - daily morning report and noon conferences which use case-based, group discussion and traditional lecture formats. These experiences are combined with hands-on sessions in neonatal resuscitation, critical care certification, procedure workshops, and other sessions to address all of the competencies needed to become a well-rounded physician. Annual retreats off campus allow for extra workshops on topics from teaching, communication, leadership and practice/financial management.
Our program offers electives in all specialties, and a variety of primary care electives in urban, suburban, or rural practices. Extra electives at Camp Riley, Kenya, Research and others offer truly unique opportunities.
