In addition to providing a high level of clinical care and education for residents and medical students, the department has also been the recipient of numerous research grants and awards. We are proud of its highly successful and visible history as an educational resource for voluntary pediatricians in our metropolitan community. The department and the Medical Center are proud of these accomplishments thus far and feel that the groundwork has been laid to establish the Maimonides Infants & Children’s Hospital as a premier tertiary, secondary and primary care facility and health education academic center.
Research activity within the department involving residents and medical students continues at a pace consistent with the large clinical demands on the faculty and residents. Those residents with a genuine interest take advantage of the opportunities available. With Mary Rojas, Director of Pediatric Research, these opportunities will increase as residents will be exposed to a formal research curriculum incorporated in all three of their training years.
In addition to the Annual Pediatric Research Day to highlight the scholarly projects of each of our graduating PL-3 trainees, our residents present every year at Residents' Night at the Brooklyn Pediatric Society and have frequently presented at Residents' Night at the New York Academy of Medicine. A Maimonides resident has been the recipient of the Best Presentation Award 3 times and runner-up at least once in the last 5 years.
Our residents have given poster presentations at National Meetings including: The American Thoracic Society, The American Academy of Pediatrics National Conference Exhibition, and The Pediatric Academic Societies (PAS). Each year our residents present 10-15 posters at PAS meetings. Residents have also presented at meetings of the Eastern Society for Pediatric Research, and at the Endocrine Society meetings.
Several of our residents have published results of their scholarly activity in journals such as New England Journal of Medicine; Journal of Perinatology; Journal of Pediatrics; Journal of Pediatric Endocrinology and Metabolism; Journal of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology; Pediatrics in Review and Consultants for Pediatricians, to name a few.
Our program supports and strongly encourages residents to engage in the writing of grants. Two of our residents were recipients of CATCH planning grants from the American Academy of Pediatrics in the past three years.
