Curriculum Maps


Curriculum maps are tools that assist a teacher with organizing the content to be delivered to a student during a period of time. They provide an overview of overarching goals, essential concepts and skills to be mastered by the learner, curriculular methods and resources to be used, and learner assessments to be employed. For the student, they can be helpful in understanding the overall educational process and the teacher’s expectations.

We have taken the content components of national pediatric medical education curricula and have mapped their content components to the cases found in PediatricEducation.org, thus creating content curriculum maps for different learners (e.g. medical students, pediatric residents, family medicine residents, etc.).

As PediatricEducation.org is not specifically designed to meet the educational needs of any one of these curricula, there may be few or no cases associated with a particular content component. We expect that these deficiencies will be remedied over time as the content in PediatricEducation.org expands.
