COVID-19 Impact on Recruitment
National Guidelines
The leadership of APPD, CoPS, and AMSPDC has been working collaboratively with fellowship and residency leaders and trainees to mitigate the effects the COVID-19 pandemic is having on them and their educational programs and health systems. To prepare for the 2021 fellowship application cycle, we have developed the following recommendations for programs to adopt and incorporate into their recruitment planning processes... Application Process Recommendations

 

Diversity / Equity / Inclusion

Diversity

The Department of Pediatrics believes that an environment of inclusiveness and respect promotes excellence, and that a setting where diversity is valued leads to the training of physicians who are prepared to practice culturally effective medicine and meet the needs of the various populations we serve.

Visit our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion page to learn more...

 

Well-Being / Resilience

Be well

By embracing wellness and improving personal resiliency, physicians can reconnect with the meaning of their work and fend off stress. Reducing or eliminating burnout also has practical implications for the entire department such as improving patient safety, student advancement, and the overall campus environment.
