Congratulations to Dr. Michael Colburn on his recent publication in the Journal of Adolescent Health.
Colburn MD, Harris E, Lehmann C, Widdice LE, Klein MD. Adolescent Depression Curriculum Impact on Pediatric Residents’ Knowledge and Confidence to Diagnose and Manage Depression. Journal of Adolescent Health. 66(2), February 2020, Pages 240-246.
From the Abstract: In this study, few residents reported experience initiating medication or managing adolescent depression in the continuity clinic. Residents demonstrated increased self-assessed knowledge and confidence to diagnose and manage adolescent depression after participation in a case-based adolescent depression curriculum simulating patient-provider continuity. Incorporation of training on management of adolescent depression into AM rotation may be a feasible option to standardize training within pediatric residency.
