Who We Are
Our residents are our greatest asset. They come from diverse and interesting backgrounds, but they share their love for the care of children and a strong sense of camaraderie and commitment to supporting each other. In our selection process we place a premium on social skills and emotional intelligence, which we foster through our mentoring program and a very close relationship between each resident and the program leadership team. Each class includes 11 categorical and 4 med/peds residents, who are led and guided by 2 chief residents, the program director and associate program directors. Two annual full day retreats support the camaraderie among residents and serve to teach residents about communication skills, professionalism, group dynamics and more.
Residents completing our program are successful in a broad range of professional careers. The balance between residents pursuing further training in premiere fellowship programs around the country and those continuing their careers in one of many outstanding practice opportunities around the metropolitan area is about even. Residents enjoy the help of individual faculty mentors to shape and foster their careers.
