The Boston Combined Residency Program in Pediatrics (BCRP) was formed to meet the needs of the future, bringing together the training programs of Boston Medical Center (formerly Boston City Hospital) and Boston Children’s Hospital. Boston Medical Center has a long and important history of clinical research, advocacy, public policy and primary care training for pediatricians. Boston Children’s Hospital is the nation’s leading research and training institution dedicated to the care of children, adolescents, and young adults with unusual and complex medical problems.
Pediatric care is changing rapidly and the dynamic interface between health care systems, and complex medical challenges requires residency training programs to constantly modify our educational programs. Pediatricians of the future will need advanced knowledge and skills to diagnose and treat children with medical and surgical problems in a primary care setting. Subspecialists will work in close collaboration with primary care clinicians in managing children who require their expertise. Imbedded within this framework of pediatric care must be the continued development of leaders in academic medicine and research.
