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
Links to the Resident Education Special Interest Group at "www.aap.org/sections/compedsect/ socpsigs.html". Please note that this URL no longer exists. However, the material has been incorporated on the website http://www.aap.org/sections/socp/sigRET.html. DAL
The AAP Resident Section at "www.aap.org/sections/resident"
ACGME Program Requirements for Residency Education in Pediatrics at "www.acgme.org/acWebsite/downloads/RRC_progReq/320pr106.pdf"
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.
