Lead and Acquire: Pediatric Primary Care for Vulnerable and Underserved Populations

Content

The LEAD and ACQUIRE Leadership in Pediatric Primary Care of Underserved and Vulnerable Populations is a three-year categorical pediatric training program. The curriculum will specifically focus on pediatric primary care of underserved and vulnerable populations and will begin recruiting in the fall of 2016 for the 2017-2018 academic year.

The call for pediatricians with a commitment to serve vulnerable populations is becoming more imminent given the current climate for underserved children’s healthcare in the United States today. The Lead and Acquire Pediatric Residency track is focused on training future pediatric leaders working towards narrowing the effects of poverty that perpetuate social detriments of health. The curriculum will focus on advocacy, community collaboration, quality improvement, public policy, and leadership skill development.
