Review of a new AAP website: "www.aap.org/commpeds/additional/resident.html"

Reviewed by David Levine, Morehouse School of Medicine

AAP has a new section on the website, devoted to promoting community pediatrics to residents. It is mostly a repository of information and links including the following:

  • AAP Policy Statements that embody the broad principles and practice of Community Pediatrics

  • A PowerPoint Presentation to download and use to market to residents about considering choosing Community Pediatrics

  • Links to the "Medical Home Training Program"

There is also a section on Department of Community Pediatrics Resident Related Initiatives - Programs that are engaged in projects as well as resources to engage in a project, including

  • Resident related CATCH initiatives and information on how to apply

Overall, I think this is a nice start as a repository for resources for Community Pediatrics. There is nothing new on the site, but it is a worthwhile endeavor. Those that haven't looked at the Policy Statements or have resources about promoting Community Pediatrics may get some use from the site; otherwise this will be a useful repository to come back to.
