PRIMARY CARE EXPERIENCE
Our pediatric residency program offers a strong and continuously growing primary care experience. Primary care training consists of weekly continuity clinic sessions and annual ambulatory rotations. With the guidance of our expert general pediatrics faculty, residents develop their own patient panel and have the opportunity to follow children seen within the hospital, serving as their primary care physicians for these patients from birth onward.
Our outpatient ambulatory training is multidisciplinary, varied and takes place in the largest General Pediatrics practice in Northeastern New York. Our practice serves as the de facto home for all complex and critically ill children within a 3 hour radius and oftentimes receives pediatrician to pediatrician referrals. In addition to outstanding general pediatrics care, our ambulatory faculty also specialize in child abuse, Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome, adoption, weight loss, breast feeding, and lead toxicity.
