We are offering a paid internship to perform field work for a newly grant funded project with community pediatricians and help in the development of a new system for providing feedback to clinical trainees. Boston Children's Hospital specialists in developmental medicine and in psychiatry will lead an interactive, case-based webinar (Teach Rounds) twice per month for a Massachusetts network of pediatricians caring for one-fourth of the children in Massachusetts. The webinars will focus on issues related to mental health and developmental disorders with additional focus on psychosocial aspects of the child's environment. This project will expand and quantify the impact of these collaborative webinars on pediatric practices.
We also are developing a new system for providing feedback on clinical skills to fellows training in Developmental Medicine. The new system allows faculty to provide frequent feedback to trainees using a web-based platform accessible on their smartphones. We are conducting a small evaluation study to assess the utility and impact of the new system. The intern will gain experience in systems-level functioning, quality improvement in health care and medical education, and real-world research in dynamic and multi-leveled systems. There also are opportunities to observe a clinical session in the Developmental Medicine Center and/or attend didactic sessions with Fellows on topics of interest.
