Part-time training in pediatric residency programs: principles and practices.
Despite growing interest in part-time work, few pediatricians are pursuing part-time residency training. There is currently little guidance for programs or residents who wish to design an alternative path through residency. In this article we review the need for part-time residencies and address obstacles to be overcome in their initiation. Strategies are offered for residents and program directors planning part-time training pathways, with recommendations for implementation amid a changing environment for graduate medical education. The needs of trainees, residency programs, hospitals, and credentialing organizations are considered.
