Medical Student Seminar on Family Centered Care and Developmental Disabilities

Medical students receive an introduction to developmental disabilities and family centered care through the Seminar on Family Centered Care and Developmental Disabilities, a required component of the pediatric rotation for all third year medical students at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Brunswick, NJ.

The Boggs Center coordinates the seminar eight times each year in collaboration with other divisions at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Department of Pediatrics.

A key component of the seminar is visits to families in their homes, to increase awareness of and sensitivity to the strengths and needs of families who have a child with a developmental disability.
