Pediatric and adolescent gynecology (PAG) is a unique subspecialty for which accessible educational resources and clinical exposure have historically been limited; surveys show that trainees in both obstetrics and gynecology and pediatrics agree. In 2014, the North American Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology (NASPAG) introduced PAG WebEd, an original and interactive online case-based curriculum designed to bridge this learning gap. As of 2023, there are 35 published PAG WebEd clinical cases with key learning points that present, test, and discuss a variety of current PAG topics. The NASPAG Resident Education Committee (REC) compiled and reviewed administrative data from the module platform to investigate trainee utilization and performance. The activity data and assessment scores for 161 registered users are included and reported in this article. This brief report highlights that a relatively small number of medical trainees use PAG WebEd and aims to raise awareness of this resource through publication. There is potential for many more users to benefit from this resource; its efficacy as an examination and clinical practice tool could also be measured. The NASPAG REC hopes to ultimately show, with increased utilization, that PAG WebEd deserves to be a key piece of PAG-focused medical education.
