The residency program has a long history of a strong commitment to teaching primary care pediatrics. Seventy percent of the pediatricians in Indiana have been trained at our hospitals. The Section of 80 General and Community Pediatrics is the largest section in the Department of Pediatrics. Residents participate in all phases of outpatient primary care, including well child care, chronic disease management and the treatment of common behavioral disorders and acute illness.
The Dyson Community Initiative has enhanced our focus on both community pediatrics and the medical home model of care.
Primary care didactic activities occur within the noon conference series, weekly vignettes for continuity clinic and workshops within the community pediatrics rotations.
Specialized ambulatory experiences broaden the residents' skills across the range of pediatrics. Primary care sites house specific services such as Child Abuse/Sexual Assault and Diagnostic Clinics.
