Abstract

Pediatric training programs have recently witnessed a renewed emphasis on community-based experiences. This change can be attributed partly to the need for a more appropriate foundation for careers in general pediatrics and partly to a call for more generalist physicians as a result of health care reform. Community experiences provide optimal sites for residents to learn community-based primary care, practice management, collaboration with patient care teams, and advocacy on behalf of children's issues. The literature of the past year has focused on the theoretical issues, curricular components, and practical demands of implementing such experiences.
