The evolution of graduate medical education over the past decade: Building a new pediatric residency program in an era of innovation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Aim: In 2011, Johns Hopkins Medicine integrated with All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg Florida to create an academic campus nearly 1000 miles from Baltimore. In 2014, the newly named Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital established a new pediatric residency program. At that time, the Association for Graduate Medical Education had not accredited a new pediatric program in the USA in over 10 years. Methods: A unique set of circumstances provided an opportunity for program developers to build the residency under newly identified core tenets to create a number of innovative features targeted to address the many calls for change in graduate medical education. Results: This paper focuses on three of those innovations and demonstrates how they address the many challenges introduced by the changing landscape of graduate medical education. Conclusion: Although a full evaluation of our program is only possible after many years, this article presents the core tenets which guided curricular development and discusses our experiences thus far. We provide lessons learned for programs considering similar innovations.
