It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Web page for the Committee on Pediatric Education (COPE).
The purpose of this Committee is to act as a think-tank within the American Academy of Pediatrics for discussion, consensus building and collaboration on emerging issues facing pediatric education. This includes proposed policy, research, curriculum and faculty development, outcome measures, and practice issues as they relate to pediatric education.
The Committee, in coordination with member organizations, reviews and monitors the field of pediatric education, identifies gaps or areas in need of enhancement, and recommends appropriate strategies and/or organizational structures. These activities serve the common goal of advancing pediatric education.
We hope you find the resources helpful and encourage you to visit the COPE page for information on current educational policy, curricula and research.
