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.
Our Key Strengths
- Our residents, who work together and with interprofessional teams to provide amazing care to children in our region
- Well-balanced education between our tertiary/quaternary care and community hospital sites, which leads to graduates who are well-trained for independent practice
- Breadth and diversity of our patient population and available resident experiences
- Flexible, individualized training including optional participation in one of our Tracks: community health & advocacy (CARE), Global CARE, medical educator, primary care, refugee CARE, research, and subspecialty practice
- Resident involvement in key quality improvement efforts in our program and throughout the institution; the University of Rochester is one of eight institutions across the country chosen by ACGME to be a CLER Pathway Innovator.
- National leader in community health and advocacy education, including our Pediatric Links with the Community (PLC) rotation for interns and the CARE track
- Faculty invested in supporting resident education and autonomy
