The intention of the Stanford DBP rotation is to train residents to be able to address the developmental and behavioral issues that are frequently brought to the attention of the general pediatrician or to subspecialists in other fields. This project sought to evaluate the impact of training efforts on lasting outcomes with the overall objective to evaluate the medium- and longer-term impact of DBP training (required 4-week rotation) for pediatrics residents.
- to examine medium-term outcomes of DBP education and training through an objective measure - retrieving and analyzing 3rd year resident DBP subtest scores on pediatrics in-training examinations (ITE) - Completely achieved
- to examine longer-term outcomes of DBP education and training by surveying all recent graduates (2012-2017) of the Stanford pediatrics residency program in relation to the national experience - Partial Accomplisment
- to examine longer-term outcomes of DBP education and training by contrasting, through use of statistical software, clinician DBP-related experiences and attitudes for recently graduated clinicians who are in General Pediatrics vs pediatrics subspecialties. - Not acheived
- Contact information for past residents is difficult to access and requires a systematic process. Current records are inaccessible or unuseable. It is critical to establish communication avenues with residents before they graduate. Introduction of the idea of post-graduation contact also would be helpful.
