APPD LEARN is the APPD's Longitudinal Educational Assessment Research Network. APPD LEARN provides an infrastructure for multi-centered, collaborative research projects and a centralized data collection system. LEARN encompasses two research networks that share the APPD LEARN infrastructure and governance.

APPD Research and Scholarship Learning Community

The APPD Research and Scholarship Learning Community is charged with establishing an organizational framework that will promote the APPD (or its individual members) to conduct research projects that will contribute knowledge to the APPD or to the field of pediatric postgraduate medical education. Such research projects may include study of program operations, as well as projects designed to study novel curricular or evaluation instruments that will allow programs to address and measure ACGME competencies.
