Our faculty teaches general pediatrics to residents and medical students in partnership with the Fair Haven practice at 150 Sargent Drive, and we also enjoy teaching in our specific areas of clinical interest. The Adolescent and DBP selectives are hosted within our section, as are electives in Child abuse and Rheumatology. Teaching activities include one-on-one interactions in the clinical settings, small group conferences, Outpatient Academic Half Day, Core Resident Teaching Conferences, and Grand Rounds at Yale and at affiliated hospitals. The pediatric portion of the Primary Care Clerkship (“the Biopsychosocial Approach to Health” for medical students is directed by our faculty. Many of our faculty serve as mentors for student and resident research and advocacy projects.
We give invited lectures both nationally and internationally on a variety of pediatric topics, including pediatric rheumatology, Lyme disease, child abuse, efficacy of vaccines, international child health, and international child adoption (to name a few). One of our faculty is the Deputy Director of the Program in Investigative Medicine, another is the pediatric lead for the National Clinician Scholars Program at Yale. Our faculty edit the Yale Primary Care Pediatrics Curriculum.
