ABSTRACT:

Objective
Explore pediatric residents' experiences and confidence with quality improvement (QI).

Methods
Pediatric residents were surveyed nationally in July 2017 about their demographic characteristics, experiences with QI projects over the previous year, and confidence with QI skills. Descriptive statistics and distributions of each individual demographic and QI variable, as well as training program size, were calculated for each variable. QI question responses were compared to demographic characteristics of the respondents, and chi-...

ABSTRACT:

Infantile hemangiomas (IHs) occur in as many as 5% of infants, making them the most common benign tumor of infancy. Most IHs are small, innocuous, self-resolving, and require no treatment. However, because of their size or location, a significant minority of IHs are potentially problematic. These include IHs that may cause permanent scarring and disfigurement (eg, facial IHs), hepatic or airway IHs, and IHs with the potential for functional impairment (eg, periorbital IHs), ulceration (that may cause pain or scarring), and associated underlying abnormalities (eg, intracranial and aortic...

ABSTRACT:

The American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) certifies that general and subspecialty pediatricians meet standards of excellence established by their peers. Certification helps demonstrate that a general pediatrician or pediatric subspecialist has successfully completed accredited training and fulfills continuous certification requirements (Maintenance of Certification [MOC]). One current component of the MOC program is a closed-book examination administered at a secure testing center (ie, the MOC Part 3 examination). In this article, we describe the development of an alternative to this...

ABSTRACT:

In 2011, the Education in Pediatrics Across the Continuum (EPAC) Study Group recruited four medical schools (University of California, San Francisco, University of Colorado, University of Minnesota, and University of Utah) and their associated pediatrics clerkship and residency programs directors to be part of a consortium to pilot a model designed to advance learners from undergraduate medical education (UME) to graduate medical education (GME) and then to fellowship or practice based on competence rather than time spent in training. The central design features of this pilot included...

ABSTRACT:

The American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) is responsible for certifying that general pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists have met and continue to meet standards of excellence that lead to the high-quality health care of infants, children, and adolescents. Board certification involves 2 primary components: successfully completing an accredited training program and taking and passing a written examination. The ABP uses a process known as practice analysis to ensure that its exams measure the knowledge required for safe and effective clinical practice. Measurement professionals and...
