In order to ensure that all future physicians receive essential education in child, adolescent, and family mental health, we need to increase exposure to CAP in the undergraduate curriculum. ADMSEP Council has approved a list of benchmark CAP learning objectives. To help you implement these objectives, we have put together a toolbox of online resources that you may find helpful.
- These resources have been generously contributed by CAP educators, which include members of AACAP, ADMSEP, AADPRT, and AAP.
- The CAPME Task Force is providing them as a service to ADMSEP and AACAP members.
- A formal peer-review of these materials has not been conducted by the CAPME Task Force, although they may have been published elsewhere.
- Unless otherwise noted, non-copyrighted presentations are freely downloadable and adaptable for your use, as long as you credit the author.
- Please access this web page using a desktop link as the mobile link cannot be supported at this time.
These resources are a collaborative work in progress! The CAPME Task Force will add categories and resources as needed. If you don't see what you are looking for, please send suggestions to Geri Fox at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work on getting it for you. We welcome your contributions, feedback, and suggestions. If you have additional resources to share, please email email@example.com.
- If you would like personalized curricular consultation from a CAP educator in your AAMC region, please email Rita Horton, MD at RHort1@lsuhsc.edu.
- We encourage you to consult with the CAP training director at your institution about ways to improve CAP in your medical school curriculum.
- You may find it useful to discuss implementation of the CAP learning objectives with other clerkship directors (particularly pediatrics and family medicine) as well as the curriculum committee at your school.
