About This Program
Our pediatric residency program is a fully accredited, university-based program with access to two free-standing children's hospitals – a unique opportunity, which allows for a diverse exposure to faculty, interaction with the UC Irvine School of Medicine, and different types of clinical settings. We believe in providing residents with a top-notch, broad-based educational experience in a collegial environment. Our graduates are well-prepared to manage pediatric patients, which can be attested for by strong board pass rates, successful fellowship matches, and ease in securing employment after residency across Orange and Los Angeles counties. Being the only pediatric residency program in Orange County, residents form strong bonds with local health care providers as well as our AAP Chapter. Residents also have opportunities to engage in advocacy, research, and global health initiatives. Finally, given our numerous resources, residents are encouraged, and provided guidance, to develop individualized pathways to align with personal career objectives.
