CPTI Phase II Grantees and Scholars
CATCH Residency Training Grants Program
The Community Pediatrics Training Initiative partnered with CATCH in 2007 to pilot a new grants program targeting pediatric residency training programs. The mission of this program is to provide support to residency programs to build sustainable opportunities for residents to gain experience working on community-based child health initiatives that increase access to medical homes or specific health services not otherwise available.
During the first two years of the program, 17 grants have been awarded to pediatric residency programs, which submitted proposals to plan and implement community-based child health initiatives as part of the training curriculum. Grant activities are to be completed over the course of 16 months.

CPTI Advocacy Training Grants
The CPTI is continuing the Advocacy Training Grants Program, which supports faculty-resident pairs in advocacy training and collaboration with their local chapters. Six pediatric faculty-resident pairs attended the AAP Legislative Conference on March 30-April 1, 2008 in Washington, DC. Following conference participation, each faculty-resident pair is required to implement an educational activity on child advocacy in coordination with their local AAP chapter. Local chapters have received up to $1,000 toward completing the educational activity in conjunction with the faculty-resident pairs.

PAS Educational Scholars Program: Cohort II - Community Pediatrics
The Ambulatory Pediatric Association and AAP Community Pediatrics Training Initiative are co-sponsoring Cohort II of the PAS Educational Scholars Program targeting present or future faculty in academic pediatrics with interest and experience in Community Pediatrics, who wish to build their skills in educational scholarship. Ten Community Pediatrics Scholars were selected for Cohort II in 2007. They will earn a Certificate of Excellence in Educational Scholarship after completion of the 3-year program, which includes didactic sessions, participation in and review of workshops, and a mentored project.
