Thriving in a Changing Academic Medical Landscape
Over 50 of us got together for our APA region 1 meeting on March 14, 2016 at the The Inn at Longwood Medical - 342 Longwood Ave, Boston, MA . The title and focus of the meeting was Pathways to Academic Productivity: Professional development in pediatric research, education, and quality improvement.
The keynote address was given by Jonathan Finkelstein, MD, MPH: "QI, Research, and the Yellow Brick Road to a Learning Health System" and guided us on a journey that explored the worlds of QI and research including analytical challenges and issues regarding appropriate ethical oversight.
Lei Chen, MD gave a very spirited workshop: "Crafting a winning, or at least acceptable, manuscript" and shared some very helpful tips on the essentials of the various sections of a scientific manuscript for clinical research.
Mark Schuster MD PhD gave us a national APA update.
The following faculty Mark A. Schuster, MD, PhD, Laurel K. Leslie, MD, MPH, Judith Palfrey, MD, Joanne E. Cox, MD, Lei Chen, MD, MHS, Jonathan Finkelstein, MD, MPH, Matthew Sadof, MD held informal group mentoring during a lunch with the professor.
A workshop on Multivariable Regression Techniques for Pediatric Clinical Research was given by Michael C. Monuteaux, Sc.D.
We had 7 platform presentations and 17 posters representing 11 institutions. We would again like to congratulate Karen Farbman, MD from Children's Hospital Boston who won the award for her presentation of ";A Quality Improvement Initiative to Reduce Admission Rates for Children With Anaphylaxis".
All in all a good time was had by all and many old and new connections were made.
We look forward to seeing you at the PAS meeting in Baltimore. Please join us at the Region 1 breakfast.
Your region co- chairs,
