Professional Development and Mentoring

  • Faculty Advisors – residents have the opportunity to meet potential advisors during advisor “mixers” held during PL-1 orientation.  Residents then select an advisor who will help guide, teach, and mentor the resident throughout the 3 years of training.
  • Quarterly meetings with advisors are mandatory, and periodic group social meetings with residents and all advisors continue throughout the academic year
  • Specific conferences regarding choosing a career, identifying potential subspecialty interests, searching for jobs, writing a curriculum vitae, and life after residency occur during resident retreats and as part of the noon conference series
  • Conferences regarding health care financing, billing and coding, managing stress and fatigue, and risk management also are scheduled routinely
  • An institution-wide Research/Biostatistics lecture series is available for all interested residents to attend
  • The Residents as Teachers conference and curriculum builds skills and knowledge to improve all residents’ ability to teach and supervise

The Children’s Research Institute sponsors a weekly Research Conference in which faculty and invited speakers present state-of-the-art, current basic, clinical, and translational research studies. Specific subspecialty sections also sponsor research seminars, case conferences, and journal clubs.
