Given the ever-changing landscape of medical education, it is important to provide innovative modalities to support trainee education. In support of this educational mission, the SPA will host a Question of the Week on its website. The Question of the Week will be a multiple-choice question that addresses keywords from the ABA’s pediatric anesthesia in-training exam. The question will be accompanied by a detailed discussion of the keyword with illustrations and diagrams, highlighting concepts critical to understanding the question stem. Previous questions will be archived in a searchable section of the SPA website and will remain accessible to SPA members.
How to Become Involved
We intend for this to be a collaborative project, soliciting interest from fellows and faculty from multiple pediatric anesthesia fellowship programs. Each submission should include a fellow and faculty mentor. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact our Editorial Board at SPAquestionoftheweek@gmail.com. Our Editorial Board members will provide a list of available keywords. Once you select a keyword, you will receive guidelines on how to write an effective multiple-choice question, a standard template, examples of previously written questions, and a projected timeline for submission. An editorial team will review submissions and provide peer-reviewed feedback prior to publishing the questions on the SPA website.
If you have any feedback on the SPA Question of the Week Project, please contact our Editorial Board at SPAquestionoftheweek@gmail.com. Thank you!
