SLU Community Engagement Inventory

Community Advocacy through Resident Education (CARE)

Description: Unlike a conventional residency rotation, the CARE curriculum involves sending pediatric residents to community agencies for site visits, lectures and projects that span the entire pediatric residency experience. The CARE curriculum is designed with flexibility to allow residents to focus on areas of community pediatrics that spark their interest and passion, ideally fostering sustainable advocacy efforts.
