ABSTRACT:

The existing structure of physician education has developed in siloed stages, with consecutive degrees and certifications and progressively longer training programs. As further fragmentation of health care and training systems will not improve the quality of care and education, the authors argue that a new vision of education, training, and practice as a continuum is needed.

They advocate for a model of competency-based medical education that merges with competency-based medical practice. In this system, education and training will result in individual, dynamic portfolios of valid...

ABSTRACT:

Background and Objectives
The American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) certifies that general and subspecialty pediatricians meet standards of excellence established by their peers, immediately after training and over the course of their careers (ie, Maintenance of Certification [MOC]). In 2015-2016, the ABP developed the Maintenance of Certification Assessment for Pediatrics (MOCA-Peds) as an alternative assessment to the current proctored, closed-book general pediatrics (GP) MOC examination. This article is 1 of a 2-part series examining results from the MOCA-Peds pilot...

ABSTRACT:

Opportunities in global child health (GCH), the study and practice of improving child health globally, are expanding and increasingly formalized. In education, more postgraduate pediatric training programs offer specialized GCH training, preparing graduates to provide health care to children worldwide.1 Training in clinical areas such as neonatal resuscitation for health care workers in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) are increasing,2 as are short courses for pediatricians from high-income countries (HICs) planning to practice in LMIC.3...

ABSTRACT:

Global health (GH), defined as issues that transcend national boundaries and a call for actions by key stakeholders to determine the well-being of all people,1 is an expanding field. In 2014, 25% of active pediatric-training programs had dedicated GH tracks, and 66% had faculty identified to lead GH efforts for their training programs.2 Those traveling abroad for GH experiences as trainees are likely to remain involved later in their careers in varying capacities.3,4 GH also includes pediatricians engaged locally with immigrant or refugee...

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-...
