Resident Elective Opportunities
The AAP offers an elective in Washington D.C. Three of our residents have taken advantage of this elective opportunity and they highly recommend it.
The AAP encourages advocacy work. For more information, visit their Advocacy & Policy page.
Dr. Alice Lehman received the AAP Legislative Conference Scholarship, April 2019 when she was a 3rd year resident.
Dr. Cindy Howard was awarded the Equity, Inclusion and Diversity Award in February 2020.
This award is awarded annually to the individual who demonstrates exemplary leadership and efforts to support and create a diverse and inclusive workplace, along with an educational environment where our learners can understand the needs of diverse individuals, patients, families and populations, including work in health care disparities or with underserved populations. Recipients may demonstrate this commitment across a wide range of activities including: efforts to support recruitment and retention of diverse faculty and/or trainees; teaching and/or research that expand our understanding of equity and inclusiveness; creation/promotion of multicultural programing; community outreach initiatives; or other activities in the area of equity, diversity and inclusion. This award is one of many Faculty Recognition Awards presented at the annual Julie Ross Faculty Recognition Event.
