The Department of Pediatrics Renewal Day is an important annual event that enables the Departmental community to set aside our important resources, ourselves and our time, to address an important cross-cutting issue. The goal is to interact and problem solve and to come up with definitive actions that move us forward in our pursuit of academic excellence. While the relevance of a particular annual topic to an individual member may vary depending on one’s profile, all viewpoints and inputs are welcomed, and it is unusual for a participant not to emerge from a Renewal Day with new ideas and new energy, the essential ingredients for personal and Departmental growth.
