From entry into the program to graduation, residents are given resources to help prepare for each stage of their program.

Board Review Support

Each resident receives a generous Board Review support package including:

  • Text book stipend during intern year
  • Free MedStudy during their first and second year
  • Free PediaLink access to PREP The Curriculum® all three years
  • Free copy of Laughing Your Way to Passing the Pediatric Boards, by Stu Silverstein, MD, as a third year
  • Stipend to attend a board review course after graduation
  • Our noon conference curriculum is created directly from ACGME guidelines and ABP suggested materials

 

PREP Party and the Board Review Series

Based on resident feedback, we implemented a new approach to board study where the residents work through board review questions that pertain to a suggested reading assignment for each month. The conference is led by either a Chief Resident or Program Director in addition to a guest faculty member from the “specialty of the month” who helps facilitate discussion and expand on the questions/explanations. PREP Party occurs during noon conference once a month. Board Review Series takes place in the evening once a month.

Pediatric Resident Survival Guide

All incoming residents are given a pocket-sized “Pediatric Resident Survival Guide”, a handy reference guide includes charts, guidelines, contact lists and tips useful for everyday patient encounters. This resource was created by a former resident and is maintained through the Office of Medical Education.

Transition Booklet,Your Final Year of Residency Training
