Residency

Solomon Islands

During my 4-week rotation in the Solomon Islands, I will expand upon the infrastructure laid during the initial site visit last year to build a sustainable clinical training program with a focus on pediatric acute care. I will work with local curriculum champions to strengthen the curriculum that was initiated last year. I will assess the efficacy of this curriculum including an assessment of knowledge retention following last year’s intervention. I will lead workshops in invasive and noninvasive airway management, pediatric advanced life support, neonatal resuscitation, congenital heart disease and/or procedural sedation for local trainees, as desired, with the goal of improving pediatric emergency management in this isolated community. I will assess the efficacy of this year’s interventions including pre- and postknowledge assessments incorporated into training sessions. I will work with local clinicians and trainees in the pediatric emergency department, wards, and operating room to improve my knowledge of how pediatric acute care is delivered and prioritized in the resource-limited environment. Finally, I will identify a relevant quality improvement project based on clinical observations to introduce an example of continuous process improvement and encourage ongoing improvements to clinical care. This rotation aligns perfectly with my career goals and will give me the opportunity both to learn practically how pediatric acute care is delivered in a resource-limited environment and to participate in founding an educational program to improve this care.
