About This Program
Our mission is to provide comprehensive training in pediatrics with the flexibility to meet educational needs of individual residents, allowing them to become leaders in their chosen areas of interest. We train 24 Categorical residents and 6 Med-Peds residents, in addition to 3 Child Neurology residents, per year.
We offer broad exposure to pediatrics at the Monroe Carell Jr Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, with rotations including general pediatric wards, NICU, PCCU, subspecialty services, adolescent medicine, newborn nursery, developmental-behavioral pediatrics, community health and advocacy, acute care clinic and pediatric ED. A six-month individualized curriculum is tailored to career goals, with elective opportunities available in all subspecialties, procedures, advocacy, community hospital medicine, research, community private practices and international medicine.
Academic Communities in Education, Global Health, Quality Improvement, and Physician-Scientist Training provide additional training, mentorship, and scholarship in these areas.
