The following statement was developed by the PREP Advisory Group as part of an effort to inform the Academy membership about plans currently underway for the future of the PREP program.
Planning is still in the early stages, but the Department of Education is enthusiastic about the projected changes, including 12 (instead of 10) issues of Pediatrics in Review, a new section in the journal devoted to practice management, and computerized diagnosis and management problems in addition to the Self-Assessment examination. Some of these changes will be phased in during the next 2 years; the new PREP program will actually be launched in January 1992.
Please "stay tuned"—as plans continue to develop, we will keep the membership informed. In the meantime, if you have questions, comments, or suggestions regarding PREP, we would be happy to hear from you. You may contact PREP, Department of Education, American Academy of Pediatrics, 141 Northwest Point Blvd, Elk Grove Village, IL 60009-0927.
