Abstract

Pediatric and adolescent gynecology (PAG) is an important and required aspect of training for obstetrics and gynecology (Ob/Gyn), pediatrics, and adolescent medicine training programs. PAG is an integral part of Ob/Gyn, pediatrics, and adolescent licensing exams in the United States and Canada. Specific learning objectives, according to the Council on Resident Education in Ob/Gyn (CREOG) in the United States, American Board of Pediatrics (ABP), and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons (RCPSC) in Canada must be fulfilled so these postgraduate training programs can receive their accreditation. In addition, residents must be able to provide patient care that is compassionate, appropriate, and effective for the treatment of gynecologic problems in the pediatric and adolescent patient, and the promotion of health for women and children. The Long Curriculum is a comprehensive curriculum in PAG for resident education. The curriculum is designed to meet the learning objectives for PAG as set forth by the: 1. CREOG. 2. RCPSC. 3. ABP Content Outline for General Pediatrics. Surgical aspects of the curriculum required for the Ob/Gyn trainee are noted as these would apply to trainees in Ob/Gyn. This curriculum can be used to teach learners on a rotation dedicated to PAG training or during entire residency training by dividing objectives across the different years of training. At the completion of this curriculum, the trainee will have covered all learning objectives for PAG outlined by the CREOG, RCPSC, and ABP.
