Pediatric Residency Program
Program Director's Welcome
Datasource: Pediatrics Residency Program Director
Thank you for your interest in the Memorial Healthcare System Pediatric Residency Program at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. We welcomed our first class of residents in 2018, and have been thrilled with the energy and sense of community our residents have brought to our institution.
We are now a “full grown” but still innovative program with 24 amazing current residents as well as a post-graduate chief. Our program continues to offer a great deal of flexibility to build an individualized curriculum that best prepares you for your future, whether that is in primary care, subspecialist training, or another path of your choosing.
Among other unique features, our schedules are created with a “4+2” block design, with two ambulatory weeks between every 4-week experience. Our residents find that this minimizes conflicts between inpatient and outpatient responsibilities and helps allow for a more immersive experience during core rotations.
Over and over again, our current residents name our exceptionally trained faculty as one of our biggest assets. Our faculty serve as teachers, master clinicians, supervisors, and mentors, dedicated to educating physicians to be prepared for the challenges in health care in the 21st century.
We are proud of the program we have created thus far and are confident that we offer an experience that is friendly, close-knit, diverse, inclusive, academic, and patient and family-centered.
