Pediatric Resident Research Track

We are committed to offering programs that allow our residents to reach their fullest potential and achieve career goals. For this reason, the University of Rochester Department of Pediatrics offers a Resident Research Track for those interested in exploring research and academic careers. This track, designed specifically to accommodate a wide range of interests, is an option for all residents, not only for those who already have a research focus.
