Our residency curriculum is designed to provide all residents throughout the program exposure to general pediatrics, as well as core subspecialty rotations, in order to ensure a well-rounded experience and help serve as a strong foundation for future pediatric practice. In addition, there are over 45 subspecialty and track electives offered, allowing trainees to tailor their individual residency curriculum to his/her career goals and interests.
Based on a resident’s chosen track and career goals, our faculty mentors and program leadership assist each resident in tailoring their schedule to prepare them for the next steps in their career. If a resident is interested in pursuing fellowship, we offer many electives within a subspecialty that they may consider, as well as research electives to help further strengthen their scholarly activity. For those residents interested in general pediatric primary care, we offer electives at various pediatric practices within our community, which allow for a broad exposure of different practice settings, patient populations, and business models.
Our goal is to provide a consistent experience within core essential rotations, while also offering various additional electives to make each resident’s experience truly their own.
