We encourage you to consider joining CORNET.  Enrollment in CORNET is free and without obligation; however, each institution’s site lead must be an APA member in order to enroll continuity clinics. 

Membership in CORNET will allow you, your continuity faculty, and your continuity residents opportunities to collaborate and network with colleagues nationally, receive mentorship in research and quality improvement, develop important scholarship agendas, and work with others to improve patient care and resident education.

Currently, more than 115 pediatric training programs are enrolled in CORNET, which includes over 50% of all pediatric residency training programs nationally. Among the pediatric training programs are over 160 individual continuity clinic practice sites and more than 5,900 categorical pediatric residents and medicine-pediatric residents who provide care to over 1 million pediatric patients.
