All general pediatric patients are admitted to one of two inpatient teams. Residents rotate on these teams during all three years of their training. The first year resident primarily manages the patient with the second and third year residents assuming a leadership role, overseeing and teaching first year residents and medical students. A pediatric attending conducts daily teaching rounds. Residents are exposed to a wide range of diagnoses, creating an opportunity to learn about both common pediatric diseases and complex diagnostic challenges.
General Pediatric Teams (Blue and Red)
Two teams, each with a patient census of up to 15 General Pediatric patients. Comprised of 1-2 upper level residents and 2-3 interns. Colleagues from family medicine typically rotate on either Red Team or Blue Team as interns, and the team often has a group of third year medical students as well as a Sub-I.
Subspecialty Teams (Orange - Endo/GI, and Purple - Cardiology /Nephrology)
Patient census of up to 15 total patients per team. Comprised of 1-2 upper level residents and 1-2 interns. Medical students and Sub-I's are members of this team as well.
Residents may choose from an extensive array of electives, including but not limited to: the various subspecialties, community based rotations (rural, suburban, and urban pediatric practices), rotations with allied health (speech therapy, nutrition, etc), and procedural electives (anesthesiology, sedation, procedure elective, etc.). A sampling of the more unique electives we offer includes Humanities, New Parent, Disaster Preparedness, Leadership, Language Immersion, and Milk Bank / Lactation. Third year residents have six blocks of Individualized Curriculum (IC). These IC blocks help graduating residents create rotations that meet their individual professional goals.
