The Pediatric Hospital Medicine conference series consists of 5 individual components that are designed to help fill gaps and enhance knowledge and skills that are crucial to the practice of Pediatric Hospital Medicine. These individual components include:
Patient Care Discussion: This monthly series helps to fill gaps in provision of clinical care or medical knowledge through collaboration
Faculty Development: This monthly or twice-monthly session helps hospitalists enhance their knowledge and skills in quality improvement, wellness, medical education, and professional development and scholarly activity. The goal is to help hospitalists thrive in the academic environment and work toward promotion while maintaining overall wellness.
Core Conference: This weekly conference series covers crucial ABP content areas that require further reinforcement or are not covered frequently in clinical care. Specialists throughout the DOP help lead these sessions. The goal is to refresh key concepts that will be applicable to initial or recertification boards for Pediatric Hospital Medicine.
Journal Club: This monthly conference focuses on key aspects of evidence-based medicine, including critical appraisal with a focus on application to clinical care. This series covers selected ABP content specifications related to evidence-based medicine and practice improvement.
Pediatric Event Review and Active Learning (PEaRL): Diverging from a traditional “M&M” format, this quarterly conference series offers a psychologically safe atmosphere to discuss unexpected or adverse patient outcomes, with a focus on support, learning, and practice improvement. A case is discussed in detail focusing not only on medical aspects, but also on psychosocial aspects and personal impact on physicians and other providers.
