OUR PROGRAM

Mission

Our mission is to provide a training environment in which trainees develop excellent clinical skills, versatile teaching abilities and facility in child advocacy, clinical research, and quality improvement.

Our program seeks to train confident, resourceful pediatricians who value teamwork and make a difference in the lives of their patients in general pediatrics or in the subspecialty of their choice.

We seek applicants from diverse backgrounds who value critical thinking and who possesses the work ethic necessary to become excellent pediatricians while acting as the safety net for the community.
