Where We Started
FuturePedsResident (FPR) was founded in August 2020 by Nicholas Heitkamp, MD, MS and Mekala Neelakantan, MD in response to #PedsMatch21 moving to a virtual environment. Throughout the 2020-21 match season, FPR hosted program webinars, collated virtual event offerings, and created a virtual community for future #tweetiatricians on Twitter and Instagram.
Where We're Going
What started as a team of two has grown to six teams of over twenty future pediatricians all working under the same goal; to connect pediatric programs, faculty, and applicants. With #PedsMatch22 staying virtual, we feel our work is as important as ever and we are excited to see what our second year has in store. As we grow, we continue to adapt and explore ways we can use virtual platforms to create connections.
