Pediatric Residency Program
Our mission is to provide excellent family centered healthcare to children in an academic environment that exceeds the expectations of those we serve and educate; as well as to collaborate with others in our community to improve the health status of children.
The Nicklaus Children's Health System/Nicklaus Children's Hospital Pediatric Residency Program offers experience in all facets of pediatric care from the most complex intensive care to the office practice of general pediatrics to community-outreach programs. Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Nicklaus Children's Hospital, houses 289 beds with over 40 pediatric specialties and a vast medical staff that includes more than 740 physicians. Nicklaus Children's Hospital sees over 12,000 inpatients and 160,000 patients in the outpatient setting over the year.
The three-year residency training program in pediatrics is affiliated with the Florida International University (FIU) College of Medicine and is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The program is currently approved for 84 residents and two chief residents. In addition, fellowships in varying specialties are offered. The focus of the program is to prepare residents for a lifetime of quality practice either in primary care pediatrics or in the subspecialty of their choosing. During the course of the program, residents assume increasing responsibility for patient care, acquiring clinical expertise, knowledge and skills along the way. Emphasis is placed on providing a balanced training program that prepares residents for the certifying examinations and ensures them to undertake independent medical practice in today's rapidly changing healthcare environment.
