Pediatric Residency Program
Welcome to the Pediatric Residency Program
Caren E. Gellin, M.D. Director,
Pediatric Residency Training Program
The goal of our Pediatric Residency Program is to train exceptional pediatricians who improve the lives of children and are well-prepared for their next stage of practice, regardless of focus. In general, our graduates are evenly split in pursuing primary care and excellent fellowship programs, about half of our graduates choose to stay in Rochester after residency, and our graduates include leaders in clinical care, research, community advocacy, and education. Our program values teamwork, resident leadership in both patient care and continuous program improvement, pursuit of excellence in all we do, and a supportive, inclusive, and diverse environment.
We offer a flexible, well-balanced, and supportive yet rigorous education that serves a culturally and economically diverse population. Specifically, our track system provides the flexible structure for residents to customize their training based on their individual passions. Combined training sites at Golisano Children’s Hospital and Rochester General Hospital provide the educational settings to ensure that residents are competent in the gamut of pediatric care from very common to rare conditions. Reflective of the inception of Community Pediatrics here, Rochester continues to boast a collaborative community approach in which different hospital systems and both hospital-affiliated and private practice pediatricians work together for the children and families in our region. Additionally, core principles developed in Rochester around patient care and education including the Biopsychosocial Model and Self-Determination Theory merge with our expert faculty to provide a learning environment that fosters resident autonomy, supports resident well-being, and cares for the entire patient.
