      A commentary on publication in pediatric education in the journal of the Ambulatory Pediatric Association.
      we reviewed our expectations, hopes, and dreams for the medical educational section of the Journal. With the journal's change to Ambulatory Pediatrics, we wish to use this opportunity to review and reiterate thoughts about the submissions and reflect on the past 2 years. We have solicited and published a variety of papers that we hope have provided medical educators exemplars of innovative ways to develop, implement, and evaluate medical education at all levels as well as provide timely reviews of important educational issues at the local and national level. The field of medical education is one of the major pillars of the Ambulatory Pediatric Association and a critical aspect of the work of academic health centers. Those in the field of pediatrics whose ultimate goal is to improve the health of children by focusing on the education of new child health professionals now have a well-respected career track.
