Curriculum

In over 70 years of training pediatricians, we have trained generalists through our categorical residency program; this is our first track that specifically trains residents in community settings. We focus on teaching residents to become leading innovators in the Patient-Centered Medical Home, while still completing the core components of general pediatrics training.

Non-clinical Curriculum

The primary care program has monthly didactic activities that supplement the categorical lectures. Each quarter we hold one journal club, have one experiential learning activity and have a primary-care focused speaker during an academic half-day session. Some examples of experiential learning activities that we have done include: visits to an outpatient psychiatric day treatment facility for children, shadowing an audiologist, observing early intervention evaluations, visiting school-based health clinics, and touring our Center for Telehealth

On-Line Education

With Harbor, powered by Blackboard Open LMS we are able to post every educational conference on the original date for review at a later time. With the implications of the 2011 ACGME duty hour restrictions on conference attendance we are able to act preemptively by providing conference viewing electronically. This is in addition to contributions from each division that typically include rotation objectives, up-dated literature, and other professional tools.
