High-quality clinical teaching is an essential element in preparing trainees to become independently competent clinicians. In order to better understand the context-specific faculty development needs of teaching faculty in a specific community, we sought to determine the self-reported teaching skill deficits of pediatric critical care medicine faculty and their preferences and motivations regarding faculty development to enhance their teaching.
Modified Delphi technique was used to create an online survey in which respondents rated their need for...
Research on entrustable professional activities (EPAs) has focused on EPA development with little attention paid to implementation experiences. This constructivist grounded theory study sought to begin filling this gap by exploring the experiences of pediatric residency programs with implementing EPA-based assessment.
Interviews with 19 program leader and clinical competency committee participants from 13 sites were held between January and July 2019. Participants were asked about their experiences with implementing EPA-based assessment. Data collection and analysis were iterative.

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. In accordance with best practices pertaining to short-term GH electives, many programs are attempting to build GH training opportunities beyond electives, including longitudinal GH curricula at their respective institutions, predeparture...
Mental health problems in children are growing exponentially. General pediatricians, while in a unique position to address these issues as they arise, report they lack adequate training in assessing and managing behavioral/mental health (B/MH) problems. Underscoring the importance of this area, the American Board of Pediatrics has defined B/MH as one of only 17 foundational entrustable professional activities (EPAs) for general pediatric practice. Our goal was to explore the facilitators and barriers associated with implementing and assessing the B/MH...
