The Residency Review and Redesign in Pediatrics Project was fortunate to be able to take advantage of careful thinking by others. In addition to pediatricians, we sought advice from medical educators across the spectrum of medicine, especially in internal and family medicine. Participants in the project concluded early on that top-down "redesign" of pediatric resident education was neither realistic nor appropriate. A better and more durable alternative is a formal process by which residency education can learn and evolve over time. By committing to that model, pediatrics would finally carry out the mandate of the 1978 Task Force on Pediatric Education.
