Evaluation of a Healthy Steps Residency Training Program


While 12 pediatric residency training programs have adopted a Healthy Steps curriculum in the past few years, no formal evaluation of the model's efficacy in residency education has yet been conducted. In evaluating one such program, this project will assess how residents' experience with Healthy Steps has affected two types of outcomes: 1) continuity and quality of pediatric care while in residency training; and 2) post-residency attitudes, perceived competence, and practices regarding behavioral, developmental, and psychosocial pediatrics. This rigorous evaluation will provide educators with reliable information about Healthy Steps' strengths and limitations for use in pediatric residency training programs. In addition, the study's findings will be of value to experts at Boston University School of Medicine who are currently designing, with Fund support, new child development materials for training pediatric residents.
