Pediatric Life and Career Experience Study

The Academy is recruiting a new cohort of young pediatricians for the Pediatric Life and Career Experience Study (PLACES), an ongoing longitudinal study.

Pediatricians who graduated from residency between 2016 and 2018 have been selected to participate in the new cohort via a scientific process. Participants provide annual updates on core issues such as career satisfaction, work-life balance, work environment, daily stressors and life changes. Each year, they also complete a shorter survey that focuses on one priority topic that participants identify as important. Those who have received recruitment materials are encouraged to join.
