The intern will be assigned to the ABP workforce project which includes the current longitudinal survey platform.  The following list describes in some detail the type of work that may be assigned to this individual over time.

  1. Perform a literature review of the workforce (pediatrics and pediatric focused mid-level providers) using the literature review from the University of Michigan as a starting point.
  2. Draft a list of other organization’s surveys about the pediatric physician workforce. The list would note survey content, sample, schedule of delivery/analysis/results, and separately would include sample surveys where possible.
  3. Similarly, look at other organizations’ data on the pediatric workforce such as trend data, tracking data of trainees, certification data, etc. Focus will extend to mid-level providers associated with pediatric care.
  4. In addition to categorizing other organization’s data, collect sample websites that display workforce data to help inform how the ABP may structure their workforce webpages and online analytic platform.
  5. Recheck survey tracking tables from CHEAR they are going to develop. As needed, mock-up tables for the ABP’s current surveys (recently edited in 2017) to be published on the website.
  6. Make a revised survey workbook (binder of tables, surveys, Roles and Responsibilities, Modules, etc.)
  7. Help develop state-by-state legislative webpages related to the pediatric physician workforce. This is a project that will be co-developed with the AAP to help their legislative teams.
  8. Where possible, assist the ABP in preparing data for the upcoming workforce webpages and online analytic platform.
  9. Depending on skill level and expertise, assist the ABP in considering how its workforce data might inform work conducted at the UNC Chapel Hill’s Sheps Center and by HRSA.
  10. Assist in workforce planning for pediatrics through attendance at meetings where scheduling permits including the ABP Foundation’s Board of Directors strategic planning discussions, the ABP’s Research Advisory Committee, and the ABP’s virtual workforce advisory group (to be established this year; members include representatives from groups such as the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Association of Medical School Pediatric Department Chairs, the Council of Pediatric Subspecialities, the American Association of Pediatric Program Directors).
