Educationally Focused, Not Service Driven
Our 259-bed hospital has some 300 physicians on staff, including 24/7 hospitalists and intensivists who manage the care of patients on the medical and surgical units and in our three ICUs. Because our physicians and specialists play a direct role in their patients’ daily care, our JHACH residents are able to benefit from highly meaningful clinical experiences working one-on-one with our physicians to provide patient care and focus on education within our hospital and outpatient settings.
For instance, more than a dozen attending neonatologists manage the care of infants in our 97-bed NICU. During the NICU rotation, residents and students will work with the attendings as a cohesive team, caring for a small number of patients while collaborating on continuous quality improvement strategies and enjoying a variety of didactic opportunities throughout the rotation.
Driven by outcome and opportunity
Our residents will be guided toward a 100% board passage rate and securing prized fellowships and employment opportunities. Multidimensional mentoring by program leadership, faculty and resident peers focuses on achieving key milestones in learning and teaching pediatrics. Opportunities to create and adapt to new learning experiences that are generated as a result of the ongoing changes to the current health care environments is a major advantage of our new program. With a new focus on resident outcomes, our program is geared to evaluate, report and respond to all educational experiences when other programs may be limited in their ability to introduce new experiences for their learners.
A high tech, high touch environment for learning and teaching
Our program taps into new technologies. Bedside interactions with patients and families in our state-of-the-art hospital are supplemented by simulation learning with low and high fidelity equipment in multiple simulation settings within the NICU and the JHACH Simulation Center. Multidisciplinary learning in the simulation labs as well as in our Pediatric and Adolescent Clinic enhances team training and better prepares our resident physicians to lead the pediatric teams of the present and future.
