Pediatric Residency

resAt the Department of Pediatrics and Golisano Children’s Hospital, we believe that preparing tomorrow's health care leaders is one of our fundamental responsibilities.

We pride ourselves on:

  • Earning an A+ Rating for Graduate Medical Education. We are the first institution in the nation to be awarded full accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education six years in a row.
  • Faculty who are local, state, and national leaders in community pediatrics, advocacy, health care delivery, health sciences research, and bench research.
  • Maintaining a strong partnership with the community, which allows all pediatric and combined internal medicine-pediatric residents to participate in the "Pediatric Links with the Community (PLC). The nationally recognized program, now housed in the Hoekelman center, serves as a model for residency training in community health. Read about resident reflections and community experiences.
  • Offering a rigorous program within a supportive environment. Our program is designed to provide intellectual depth and professional growth through clinical experiences and educational opportunities.

Congratulations to Our Residents and Alumni!
