Despite broad concerns about the welfare of children, most pediatric residents are not able to engage in child advocacy during their busy training years.
Yet residency can provide an opportunity for young pediatricians to learn valuable advocacy skills by undertaking an independent project with an experienced mentor.
We describe the University of Washington Pediatrics Residency Program's experience in training interested residents in child advocacy.
Basic requirements are that advocacy projects must not interfere with clinical training, resident participation must be voluntary, and faculty with advocacy skills must be available to help guide the residents.
Four resident projects are outlined and guidelines for instituting such programs are presented.
