The purposes of this study were to determine the opinion of private and academic pediatricians about changes in pediatric residency requirements proposed by the Residency Review Committee (RRC) in October 1994 and to compare the results with the requirements finalized in February 1996 and implemented in February 1997.
Surveys were mailed to all Fellows of the American Academy of Pediatrics in South Carolina.
Those surveyed were asked to agree or disagree with 57 proposed changes.
The level of agreement among all groups of pediatricians was very high ; however there were significant differences between groups of pediatricians.
Many controversial items were modified or deleted in the final version.
