Teaching Opportunities for Medicine-Pediatrics Residents
Our Medicine-Pediatrics Residency Program offers a broad range of teaching opportunities for residents. Several key areas include:
Global Health – Within the four-year curriculum, residents can spend four months abroad. A Boston-based monthly Global Health Seminar Series focusing on health care in resource-poor settings is available through Boston Children’s Hospital. Residents may also apply for the Doris and Howard Hiatt Residency in Global Health Equity through the Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) Internal Medicine Residency Program. In addition to clinical training, residents in this program complete field work at a variety of sites throughout the world.
Transition Care – As a national leader in transition care, our program leadership and residents are engaged in clinical, educational, and policy initiatives designed to improve care for young adults with childhood-onset chronic diseases. Faculty from BWH and Boston Children’s Hospital collaborate in clinical transition care programs for conditions such as adult congenital heart disease, cystic fibrosis, inflammatory bowel disease, and childhood-onset rheumatic disease, offering a range of research and clinical opportunities for our residents.
Primary Care – Training in primary care is one of our Program’s many strengths, with ambulatory education serving as an integral part of our training program. Residents have their continuity clinic in a community-based health center. Our clinic site provides services to an underserved community with ethnic and socioeconomic diversity, including many immigrants. All residents manage their own outpatient panel of patients under the supervision of our faculty preceptors. Residents attend clinic weekly and provide care to adults and children in the same session.
