Resident looking in the mouth of a child


Curriculum and Clinical Experiences

The program provides comprehensive training to prepare residents for practice in general pediatrics according to the ACGME Requirements. We are a small program with a focus on education over service, but we also believe that a consistent presence is required for a stable learning environment. Thus, the program offers individualized curriculum opportunities allowing residents to participate in the development of their training through selection of pediatric specialties while incorporating foundational experiences.

A core component of training includes a longitudinal experience in an ambulatory setting. The longitudinal ambulatory training includes half day sessions that provide training in:

  • Community Pediatrics
  • Child Advocacy
  • Adolescent Medicine
  • Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics
  • Mental Health
  • Dedicated Time for Scholarly Activity and Independent Learning

Residents receive four weeks of vacation in one week increments that may be taken during individualized curriculum rotations, subspecialty rotations and longitudinal experiences.
