ABSTRACT:

Training Globally Competent Pediatricians: How and Why?
Pediatric trainees are increasingly seeking global health (GH) educational opportunities, with ∼1 in 4 participating in a GH elective during residency. Training programs have responded to this demand: surveys suggest that ∼58% of residency and 47% of fellowship training programs offer GH electives.

The quality of care for children and adults in the United States is variable and often suboptimal. Approaches that improve the systems of care for entire patient populations are needed. The certifying medical boards can contribute to driving change by ensuring that improving care and outcomes for patients and families is the priority. The American Board of Pediatrics has catalyzed collaborative improvement networks, resulting in improved health outcomes for children, fostered partnerships with patients and families, and brought together key stakeholders to advocate for network improvement...
