Resident Education Council

Pediatric Residency Training Program

The process by which we improve our residency program relies heavily on the input and voice of the residents themselves.  In addition to regular house staff meetings and an open-door culture shared by our Chief Residents and Program Director, the Resident Education Council offers a formal mechanism for resident involvement in program improvement.  Peer-elected representatives from each class meet monthly with the program leadership to address any concerns, implement any innovations, and discuss ideas.  This is where most of the great changes to the residency start.

Recent projects from REC include the creation of improved note templates to increase efficiency, major restructuring of rotations to improve resident learning and work experiences, and the creation of a Float rotation for senior residents.
