Resources to Connect
The AAP and the Section on Pediatrics Trainees (SOPT) has numerous opportunities to engage and empower members. We have created this website to exist as a portal to share how you can connect with your professional home in Pediatrics. Visit the links below to learn about what is happening in the Academy and SOPT, and also how you can participate in the conversation via social media, newsletters, live events, and more.
Social media is a tool for sharing and discussing information that can be an effective way to inform larger audiences about an issue. The SOPT strives to use social media for advocacy, education, networking and mentorship. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, Google+, and among others blogging, are a few examples of social media platforms you may use to help spread your advocacy message, engage with mentors and colleagues, or educate about a health topic. When used appropriately, social media can complement and strengthen already existing advocacy strategies, and amplify education about a topic. The AAP and SOPT engage on different social media platforms, follow, like, and join the conversation.
SOPT News and Views
AAP News and Views from Pediatricians in Training is the newsletter of the Section on Pediatric Trainees. The publication comes out twice per year in electronic format only.
SOPT District Newsletters
Many SOPT districts have their own e-newsletter. Find your district's newsletter on our SOPT Collaboration Site.
SOPT Pediatrics Monthly Column
Pediatrics has provided SOPT with the opportunity to develop a column in the Monthly Features section of the journal featuring manuscripts written by trainees in pediatrics. This SOPT column will join three other stellar columns in the Monthly Features section: (1) Global Health; (2) the Council on Medical Student Education in Pediatrics (COMSEP); and (3) the Historical Archives Advisory Committee for the AAP.
