RDoC Resident Profiles

RDoC plans to expand their profile collection to include more subspecialty residents. They welcome profile submissions from the following groups: Internal Medicine subspecialty residents, Pediatrics subspecialty residents, CFPC enhanced skills program residents (i.e. R-3 Family Medicine residents) and residents with experience in parental leave / educational leave / program transfers.
