All residents participate in our RESUS (Resident Educational Sessions Using Simulation) curriculum. Resident teams work together in a simulated setting to learn the art of pediatric resuscitation with teaching from dedicated faculty members. During these sessions, there are various skill-based training opportunities for common procedures such as such as IO and IV insertion, chest tube placement and endotracheal intubation. Residents attend these sessions 2-4 times throughout each academic year.
Interns participate in a procedural workshop during intern orientation that reviews the basics of common pediatric procedures. In addition, interns on their NICU rotation will attend a three-hour skills lab where they review neonatal intubation and umbilical catheter placement.
