Pediatric Public Health Residency Curriculum Guide
The Pediatric Public Health Curriculum Guide aims to help pediatric program directors include population-based educational activities in their residency curricula to enhance clinical practice and meet the educational goals of residency training (i.e. ACGME competencies).
The Pediatric Public Health Curriculum Guide began in 2008 as part of UCLA's primary care residency training grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration Bureau of Health Professions. COCP Executive Committee Member Alice Kuo, MD PhD is one of the curriculum developers.

The curriculum guide includes knowledge and practice-based objectives in the core content areas of knowledge, clinical practice, and advocacy. The overall curriculum guide is modeled after the breastfeeding curriculum developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the UCLAFit for Residents obesity prevention residency curriculum.
The curriculum guide has two unique features:
- The curriculum is "adaptable" for implementation in pediatric, family medicine, and medicine-pediatrics residency programs
- The curriculum addresses issues of culture and socio-economically diverse populations.
