MidCaN Focus Areas

Whether it is support for colleagues in crisis, effecting thoughtful legislation, cosponsoring action, enabling access to care, or speaking effectively for those in need, JUST TAKE ACTION
As good leadership is hard to accomplish without practice, failure, guidance, and vision, we provide a resource to discover these.
Quality Improvement
Ever seeking the to improve the care for our patients, and to share these insights with our colleagues
Creating support for different research areas (clinical, basic science, QI, education, health services etc.), highlighting resources and successful researchers, and providing peer mentoring and opportunities to collaborate between institutions.
With many competing demands, taking care of ourselves is important because if we are not at our best, we cannot perform our best, and this puts our fragile and wonderful patients at risk.
The Describing Our Careers Interactive Summary Initiative (The DOC IS In) is an effort to better understand pediatrician careers and empower advocacy and policy.
