Medical Education Advisor
Each intern is assigned to one of the medical education faculty members during his or her first year to ensure that primary educational needs are being met. Emphasis is on history and physical examination skills, medical thinking and decision-making, and case presentations.
Early in the fall of the post-graduate year (PGY), every resident selects an advisor/mentor. Residents and advisors meet on a regular basis to outline educational goals, formulate individualized learning plans and discuss evaluations and career goals.
Once a resident decides on a specific career path, he or she may opt to change or add a faculty advisor in the general or subspecialty area most related to specific career goals. Faculty members should guide residents through the application process for fellowships or the job search for positions in private practice.
Each resident is required to perform a scholarly activity during his or her training. Through the Goryeb Academic Pediatric Support committee (GAPS), each resident is linked with a faculty research mentor to help focus the resident’s interest and navigate the proper channels toward a successful research project.
Board Review Advisor
Each PGY-3 is assigned to one of the medical education faculty members to assist with planning for board study process. This includes deciding on an individual basis the best learning style and study materials for each resident. At Goryeb Children's Hospital, we have an individualized approach to each resident's education.
