Educational Resources

Online Learning Opportunities

Anytime, anywhere learning comes to the residency program by way of an array of tools and websites for residents.  All resident and departmental educational conferences are offered through virtual platforms.  The majority of these presentations are recorded for asynchronous viewing as well.  Further examples of online educational resources include streaming presentations developed in-house by the Pediatric Emergency Medicine Division, Quality Improvement modules from the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, online nutrition seminars from Abbott, and  the Johns Hopkins Pediatrics Ambulatory Care Curriculum online. This model for online educational modules has been replicated by several other divisions in the past year.


Blackboard

Our Learning Management System (LMS), Blackboard, is home to online lectures and quizzes; interactive patient care modules such as SoftChalk; and serves as a repository for important articles, documents, links, and presentations for resident education.  It can be accessed anywhere as long as you have an internet connection.

Amion

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.

MedHub

Residents can logon anytime, anywhere to MedHub and enter their work hours and procedure logs, download needed forms and review up-to-date announcements. The management software is also home to rotation goals and objectives and resident evaluations. A one-stop shop!

Microsoft Office 365

Residents are granted access to a full complement of tools through the Microsoft Office 365 Suite including Outlook, Word and PowerPoint.  Resident groups are able to work remotely through Microsoft Teams.

Adobe Creative Suite

University trainees, faculty, and staff have subscription access to more than 20 Adobe programs, including desktop and mobile apps as well as hundreds of online tutorials. 

 

 

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

Created by our Office of Medical Education for our graduating residents, this booklet will aid your transition to a clinical practice setting, academic position or fellowship training.
