Our program offers advanced technology from state-of-the-art mannequins for crisis management simulations to online tools for simplifying the residents’ daily lives. Below is a sample of what we offer.
Online Learning OpportunitiesAnytime, anywhere learning comes to the residency program by way of an array of tools and websites for residents. Examples include streaming presentations developed in-house by the Pediatric Emergency Management division, Quality Improvement modules from the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, online nutrition seminars from Abbott, and a breastfeeding training from the Yale Primary Care Pediatrics Curriculum online.
As part of the Simulation for Pediatric Assessment, Resuscitation and Communication Program (SPARC), residents perform their mock code in an in-situ training site (i.e. an actual clinical environment rather than a separate simulation center) on high fidelity mannequins, seamlessly integrating training with reality. These simulations are recorded and reviewed in a group debriefing center after each session. Watch a recorded session to learn more.
Our core conferences are audio recorded and integrated with PowerPoint using the software Tegrity. We then add post-session quizzes to the presentation and load the entire bundle to Blackboard, giving residents the flexibility to receive conference credit when they aren’t able to attend noon conference.
SoftChalk online modules are interactive presentations about real-life patient cases the residents encounter. Within each case, residents will walk-through patient signs and symptoms, the mechanisms used to diagnose the patient, treatment options, and follow-up information. Short, graded quizzes allow residents to receive conference credit for each quiz they successfully complete.
Our chief residents manage the resident schedules online using the web-based tool, Amion. Residents can view the entire house staff schedule as well as create custom views of their own schedule for all rotations by day, month or year.
Residents can logon anytime, anywhere to New Innovations and enter their duty hours and procedure logs, download needed forms and review up-to-date announcements.
