Podcasts Changes to Impact Pediatric Residency Program and Current Staff Responsibilities

This week Denise Bratcher, DO, Director-Pediatric Residency Program, and Jason discuss Children’s Mercy’s extensive Graduate Medical Education program, including training of pediatric residents and the impact of educational curricular changes that will take effect in July 2013. Recommendations from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) limiting resident work hours and allowing residents greater flexibility in tailoring their training to their areas of interest will impact the care of children at our hospital. Listen to find out Denise’s and Jason’s thoughts on these coming changes, and the need for even greater teamwork to assure patient safety and to provide the best outcomes for our patients.
