Residents have protected half-day lectures that cover topics including cardiology, PICU, dermatology, endocrinology, metabolics/genetics and surgical subspecialties.
Additionally, rotation-specific curricula include morning report, teaching on rounds, rotation-specific modules and special afternoon lectures.
Child advocacy is a crucial part of pediatric residency training. Our residents benefit from a community pediatrics rotation that exposes them to advocacy at the patient, community and policy levels. Residents benefit from close proximity to the Texas Capitol and the Texas Pediatric Society headquarters. Residents also spend time working with a child abuse pediatrician on the CARE rotation.
Residents as Teachers
Our residents benefit from a longitudinal curriculum aimed at improving and developing their skills as teachers. This curriculum culminates in a block rotation during the second year that includes mentored presentations and direct responsibility for teaching and working with medical students. Residents will give formal presentations and learn techniques for delivery of information.
Pediatric Residency Distinction Program
The distinction program is a unique opportunity in the pediatric residency for applicants who want to focus on developing skills in health care transformation through leadership, innovation and discovery. This program provides dedicated mentorship and training for three selected pediatric residents per year. Participants are actively involved along with their peers in surgery, internal medicine and women’s health to lead projects in quality improvement, health care value and/or population health.
Residents in the distinction program have the opportunity to work directly with faculty in quality improvement, health care value, population health, person-centered design and primary care. Also, residents will have the opportunity to work with the Design Institute for Health, Department of Population Health and other innovative groups at Dell Medical School.
