For Professionals

Social Pediatrics Residency Program - Research Projects

Social Pediatrics Research Projects

The Social Pediatric Residency Program’s main focus is to train physicians and provide them with competence in understanding and working with their community to improve health outcomes. Residents will learn that to create effective advocacy opportunities, involvement in community work must be conducted with academic rigor.

The Social Medicine Project serves as a core methodology for meeting the goal of the social pediatrics program. In the course of conducting the project, residents will develop competencies in the ACGME defined areas of systems-based practice, practice-based learning and improvement, and professionalism.

Residents are required to design, implement and present a social medicine community-based research or advocacy project during their residency.  A faculty member will be the primary mentor at the beginning of PGY-2 year for all social medicine projects.  Residents have protected time to work on the project over the course of their second and third years.

In addition there are formal didactic sessions on relevant research topics as well as opportunities to receive feedback from faculty and residents. Most residents go on to present their research at regional and national meetings such as Pediatrics Academics Society (PAS) and the Eastern Society for Pediatric Research (ESPR) and meetings.  Recent poster and platform presentations include the following:
