Outreach, Education and Training

UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Community Health extends its services and resources outside hospital walls and into communities and neighborhoods around the region.

We promote the health and well-being of children and families through outreach initiatives, provide professional education opportunities, and offer innovative training experiences for pediatric healthcare providers.

Some of our key efforts are:

Community Rotation for Pediatric Residents

The Community Rotation for Pediatric Residents is a collaboration of Children’s Community Health Division and the Pediatric Residency Training Program with Community Partners. In addition to the clinical rotations that residents complete as part of their training, at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, all first-year pediatric residents complete an innovative two-week rotation with the Division of Community Health. During this rotation, residents spend time in a variety of community settings learning about social, environmental, educational, neighborhood, and other factors that may influence the health and well being of children.

Pediatric Education Series

The Pediatric Education Series (PES) is facilitated by Children’s Community Health Division and Children’s Professional Development and Education Committee. Monthly webinars by pediatric health specialists provide information and updates on topics that are relevant to professionals working in community, clinical and school settings, and include subjects such as trauma informed care, cardiac anomalies, working with transgender and expansive youth, and more. A hospital-based content expert shares the latest research and practice recommendations via a live webinar platform. Nurses are eligible to earn continuing education credits.
