ABSTRACT:

Graduating residents are under contract until June 30 and may be assigned patient care responsibilities up until this date. However, those pursuing subspecialty training are often expected to begin fellowship on July 1, posing a significant hardship, especially for those who must relocate to another region. In addition, many programs require incoming fellows to attend institutional orientation while they are still residents.1 Thus, programs and trainees must make difficult decisions that potentially disregard contractual obligations, jeopardize patient care, and limit orientation, all...

ABSTRACT:

Background and Objectives
There is an urgent need to prepare pediatricians to care for children with behavioral and mental health (B/MH) conditions. In this study, we evaluate the perceived competence of pediatric residents and recent graduates in the assessment and treatment of B/MH conditions, characterize variation in competence across residency programs, and identify program characteristics associated with high competence.

Methods
Cross-sectional survey of applicants for the initial certifying examination in pediatrics. Questions...

ABSTRACT:

Recent discussions have brought attention to the utility of contribution analysis for evaluating the effectiveness and outcomes of medical education programs, especially for complex initiatives such as competency-based medical education. Contribution analysis focuses on the extent to which different entities contribute to an outcome. Given that health care is provided by teams, contribution analysis is well suited to evaluating the outcomes of care delivery. Furthermore, contribution analysis plays an important role in analyzing program- and system-level outcomes that inform program...

ABSTRACT:

Purpose
To determine which narrative performance level for each general pediatrics EPA reflects the minimum level clinical competency committees (CCCs) felt should be associated with graduation as well as initial entrustment and compare the narratives associated with the expected narrative performance levels (ENPLs) for each EPA with actual narrative performance levels (ANPLs) assigned to residents at initial entrustment.

Method
A series of 5 narratives, corresponding to the 5 milestone performance levels, were developed for each of the...
