Curriculum

A strong curriculum with individual teaching

Our curriculum offers an appropriate balance of outpatient and inpatient experiences. It is designed with the idea that every graduate of our program should be a competent general pediatrician, but the curriculum should also offer the necessary flexibility to allow each resident to be well prepared for the next step in his or her career.
