Postgraduate medical training in the Netherlands has become increasingly individualized. In this article, the authors describe current practices for three residency programs at the University Medical Center Utrecht: anesthesiology, pediatrics, and ophthalmology. These programs are diverse yet share characteristics allowing for individualized residency training. New residents enter each program throughout the year, avoiding a large simultaneous influx of inexperienced doctors. The usual duration of each is five years...

OBJECTIVE: Participation in scholarly activity (SA) is an ACGME requirement. Yet, the authors' previous research with program directors (PDs) suggests pediatric SA training is variable and suboptimal. To help programs better meet requirements, our objective was to understand the resident perspective regarding SA training, including factors associated with satisfaction and productivity. METHODS: The authors conducted cross-sectional surveys of second and third year pediatric residents and PDs at 22 diverse programs in 2016...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: A gap analysis of emergency departments' (EDs') pediatric readiness across a health system was performed after the appointment of a service line health system pediatric emergency medicine (PEM) quality director. METHODS: A 55-question survey was completed by each eligible ED to generate a weighted pediatric readiness score (WPRS). The survey included questions regarding volume, ED configuration, presence of a pediatric emergency care coordinator (PECC), quality initiatives, policies and procedures, and equipment...

Pediatric hematologists/oncologists face complex situations such as breaking bad news, treatment/clinical trials discussions, and end-of-life/hospice care. With increasing diversity in patient and physician populations, cultural competency and sensitivity training covering different aspects of pediatric hematology/oncology (PDHO) care can help improve health care delivery and reduce disparities. Though it is considered a required component of fellowship training, there is no clearly defined curriculum meant specifically for PDHO fellows-in-training (PDHO-F)...

OBJECTIVE: To identify perceptions of behavioral health (BH) training in pediatric residency programs, the degree of involvement from behavioral health providers (BHPs), and opportunities for and barriers to innovation in training. METHOD: A tailored design methodology was used to target all pediatric residency program directors in the United States (N = 214). Participants were identified from the Electronic Residency Application Service website of the Association of American Medical Colleges and were asked to complete a 22-item item survey on BH training...

A task force of pediatric surgical specialists with the support of The American College of Surgeons recently launched a verification program for pediatric surgery, the Children's Surgery Verification quality improvement program, with the goal of improving pediatric surgical, procedural, and perioperative care. Included in this program are specific standards for the delivery of pediatric anesthesia care across a variety of practice settings. We review the background, available evidence, requirements for verification, and verification process and its implications for the practice of pediatric anesthesia across the country...

Several studies and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education recommend integration of medical home (MH) concepts into pediatric resident training. There is a paucity of research depicting the current landscape of pediatric resident MH education. We hypothesized formal MH curricula in pediatric residency education are limited and pediatric residency programs desire incorporating MH education into curricula. A national needs assessment of pediatric residency programs was conducted assessing inclusion of MH concepts in training...

BACKGROUND: Residency programs use electronic portfolios (efolios) to organize data, track resident performance, and sometimes teach and assess lifelong learning (LLL) skills. Published studies on efolios in graduate medical education are mostly descriptions of implementation at individual institutions. METHODS: An anonymous online survey was sent to 199 pediatric residency program directors across the United States. Efolio usage patterns were described and compared between program directors that perceived efolios effective at fostering LLL and those that did not...
