About This Program
We are a small, community-based program affiliated with KU School of Medicine-Wichita and thereby combine the best of two worlds—we offer a friendly community setting in which to learn and practice pediatrics, while being a tertiary care facility with diverse pathology and a wide catchment area as the only children’s hospital in the area. Graduates are well-prepared to practice general pediatrics or to match in prestigious fellowship programs. Starting in year one, our pediatric residents care for their own personal panel of patients in their continuity clinics; care for hospitalized children in the recently-renovated Wesley Children’s Hospital; rotate through our 15-bed PICU to care for critically ill children under the guidance of 24/7 in-house intensivists; and work one-on-one with a neonatologist to care for some of the more than 6,000 babies delivered annually at Wesley Medical Center. For these and many more reasons, this is a great place to train!
