About CPTI

The Community Pediatrics Training Initiative (CPTI) is a national program of the American Academy of Pediatrics that aims to improve child health by strengthening community health and advocacy training in residency programs. We support pediatricians to become leaders who address child health issues with a community perspective and advocate for positive, lasting change.

All pediatric residency graduates should be equipped with the skills necessary to engage in evidence-based community health activities and effective collaborations with community-based organizations to achieve optimal well-being for children. As trusted voices in the public arena, pediatricians can communicate the issues children are facing; mobilize families, doctors and other health professionals to be a voice for children; and create a movement that has the power to make a difference.

WE WORK ON MULTIPLE LEVELS TO IMPROVE CHILD HEALTH
CPTI works in many ways to develop pediatrician champions for community health and advocacy. We advance the field of community pediatrics by supporting:

  • Resident engagement in the community to provide a perspective of health needs beyond the hospital setting
  • Partnerships with community-based organizations to promote health at the local level
  • Faculty development to build a network of leaders who will effectively train the next generation of physicians to be effective child health advocates
  • Collaboration among residency programs to influence child health and policies on a broader level
