General Academic Pediatrics faculty members provide current and innovative education to medical students, pediatric and family medicine residents, fellows, nurses, nurse practitioners and allied health professionals. They develop and disseminate new knowledge in a wide range of areas such as:
- Common childhood diseases and conditions
- New approaches to treatment
- Best practices and standards of care
- Health outcomes
- Models of service delivery
Some of the GAP curricula are available to health professionals for review.
In addition, GAP faculty members develop and evaluate innovative services concerning the health and well-being of children and families. Learn more about research in General Academic Pediatrics at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.
GAP plays a major role in the medical education of trainees (medical students, residents in pediatrics, medicine-pediatrics, triple-board and family medicine and fellows), advanced practice providers and faculty. Our teaching activities include:
- High-quality curricula for learners of all levels
- Faculty development with emphasis on improving medical knowledge and skills
- Ongoing curriculum development by division members
These goals are inspired by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education Outcomes Project, adult-learning theory, the importance of evidence-based medicine, and the experience of master educators.
