Clinical Curriculum - Categorical Pediatrics Residency
Each year of residency training provides increased responsibility for patient care, clinical supervision, teaching, evaluation and administrative management of service areas. Clinical rotations are divided into four-week blocks.
Each PL1 is assigned to an inner-city clinic site for one half-day per week throughout the three years of training. Here residents take on the role of primary care provider and child advocate.
In their second year, residents add an additional half-day experience in a community clinic providing additional experience in community pediatrics. Alternatively, they can choose to apply to a specialty track, utilizing the additional time for a focused project. These tracks include advocacy, research, international health and quality improvement
Along with additional time for electives and individual units, third-year residents are given dedicated time for teaching and quality improvement experience, as well as protected board review time.
