The pediatric clerkship director. Support systems, professional development, and academic credentials.

Author information

Council on Medical Student Education in Pediatrics, Chapel Hill, NC, USA.


Since the advent of the clerkship at The Johns Hopkins Medical School in the late 19th century, this model has been the backbone of clinical training for medical students throughout the world. Despite the pervasiveness of clerkships, little information exists about the faculty that oversees them administratively. We documented the reported academic credentials, professional development, and support systems for pediatric clerkship directors in the United States and Canada. Our findings should be useful to clerkship directors and department chairpersons across disciplines.
