ABSTRACT:

Currently, no standard defines the clinical skills that medical students must demonstrate upon graduation. The Liaison Committee on Medical Education bases its standards on required subject matter and student experiences rather than on observable educational outcomes. The absence of such established outcomes for MD graduates contributes to the gap between program directors’ expectations and new residents’ performance.

In response, in 2013, the Association of American Medical Colleges convened a panel of experts from undergraduate and graduate medical education to define the...

ABSTRACT:

Purpose
To report findings from a national effort initiated by three primary care certifying boards to catalyze change in primary care training.

ABSTRACT:

A recent US National Institutes of Health (NIH) advisory1 to its director raises alarm about the future of the physician-scientist, a concern that other articles have noted as well.2,3 The shrinking NIH budget (in real terms) is a well-known barrier to the careers of young investigators, and pediatricians have not been immune. Indeed, the rates of NIH grant awards to departments of pediatrics have declined from 23.8% to 16.8% during the past decade.4 Because the NIH advisory also criticized the certifying boards for not doing enough to support the physician-scientist...

ABSTRACT:

Objective 
The number of children and adolescents (hereafter referred to as “children”) who have been prescribed second-generation antipsychotics (SGAs) has increased over the last decade, but little is known about monitoring practices in pediatric patients who are vulnerable to adverse effects. We examined factors associated with psychiatrists' self-reported monitoring of children who were prescribed SGAs.

Methods
A survey was mailed to a national, randomly selected sample of 1600 child and adolescent psychiatrists from the...

ABSTRACT:

Traditional drill and practice (TDP) and incremental rehearsal (IR) are flashcard drill techniques for teaching sight words to students. Although both have extensive research support, no study to date has compared these methods with children who have autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Utilizing an adaptive alternating treatments design, the present study compared TDP and IR with a second-grade student, educated in a substantially separate classroom, who was diagnosed with ASD (N = 1). Retention, maintenance, and generalization results suggested that both methods were effective...
