A study of the outcomes of graduate medical training in social pediatrics

Philip Oranye Ozuah, University of Nebraska - Lincoln


The mission of the Residency Program in Social Pediatrics (RPSP) at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine is to train physicians for underserved communities. This investigation studied graduates' perceptions of RPSP outcomes. Of 147 (80%) respondents, 93% practiced in a medically underserved area, 81% practiced in community health centers, and 83% perceived the RPSP had a substantial impact on their choice of practice settings. The most important programmatic factors influencing choice of practice settings were identified: ambulatory/continuity curriculum, faculty role modeling, social medicine curriculum, psychosocial curriculum, pairing of residents, and the social medicine project requirement. The RPSP is a successful physician-training model. ^
