Pediatric Clinical Rotations
During ambulatory rotations, seven faculty generalists supervise residents. The broad spectrum of patients and variety of experience on this service provides residents with opportunities to develop excellent clinical, diagnostic, and interviewing skills.
Our Level III nursery has 24 neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) beds. Four full-time neonatologists have been recognized for their teaching and clinical management. Residents participate actively in the NICU. Procedures, delivery room resuscitation, and hands-on care are emphasized, giving our resident physicians a strong neonatology training experience.
General Pediatric Service
All patients under the age of 21 are cared for on the Pediatric Unit. Every patient, including those undergoing surgery, has an assigned pediatric team. A supervising generalist conducts daily attending rounds, ensuring residents an excellent educational experience. Our attending specialists also work closely with the resident physician team, resulting in a varied and challenging inpatient rotation.
Pediatric Intensive Care
Our five-bed pediatric intensive care unit provides sophisticated treatments for complex diseases. Residents gain valuable hands-on experience, resulting in excellent patient management and procedural skills. Residents learn the patho-physiology and management of the critically ill child. Two full-time board certified pediatric intensivists supervise this rotation.
Our seven-bed pediatric emergency service, supervised by board-certified pediatric emergency medicine attending physicians, provides one of our program's most exciting and valuable learning experiences.
