As a center for refugee relocation, Rochester serves many refugee families by facilitating resettlement and working to meet the many needs of these children and parents. Residents have opportunities to work with refugee youth in various community-based settings. In the new Refugee CARE Track, residents do a project and spend their “second clinic” time at the pediatric refugee clinic at Genesee Pediatrics.

New Americans (particularly refugees) represent a medically underserved population. This project seeks to develop a pediatric residency track focused on improving the health of New Americans in Rochester at the Genesee Pediatrics refugee clinic.
