This program is robust in educational activities designed to emphasize high-yield pediatric board exam topics. These include morning report discussions, noon core curriculum lectures, interactive board review sessions, self-directed learning tools such as the AAP Prep Online questions, and MedStudy board preparation books, video library, and flash cards. Additionally, the PGY-3 residents are required to attend the Nicklaus Children's Hospital Annual Pediatric Board Review Course. This comprehensive four day review course is designed for pediatricians who are preparing for the American Board of Pediatrics certification or recertification examination.
These efforts have greatly contributed to the strong scores received by Nicklaus Children's Hospital residents on the American Board of Pediatrics In-training Examinations and the high program board passing rates on the ABP Certification Exam. Our program has a board-passing rate of 90%! This is a three-year average inclusive of the ABP and AOBP Initial Certification Exams.
