General Notes

Volume 2(1): May 17, 2024
Dear Readers, We are pleased to offer you our second issue of the University of Texas Southwestern Pediatric Residency Program's Journal of Pediatrics. A legacy of the innovative publication development efforts of Dr. Adeline Yang [Resident 2018-2021, Chief Resident 2021-2022], this issue is a tangible representation of our desire to share our multifaceted work in Pediatrics, more broadly. The organization of this issue includes three main sections: case reports, scholarly project abstracts, and medical humanities. We continue to be impressed and inspired by the areas of special interest our residents pursue. Like our residents, these projects include a wonderful breadth of topics and depth of thought. As we look for encouragement about the state of our field and look for fresh ideas about ways pediatrics can be further developed and advanced, we are encouraged by what this journal represents and seeks to offer.
