Residency: Outpatient Rotations
Resident Practice Group
Each resident spends one afternoon per week in the General Academic Pediatric office for their continuity clinic. This is a fantastic opportunity for residents to develop longitudinal relationships with the patients and families they follow for all three years of their residency.
General Academic Pediatrics
Residents spend 2 one month rotations working in the General Academic Pediatrics department, located on the first floor of the children's hospital. In addition to seeing patients and counseling families during this rotation, residents instruct medical students, spend time in the evening clinic and give a presentation to their colleagues on a general pediatrics topic of their choice. This unique opportunity allows the residents to gain a deeper understanding of the practice of General Pediatrics in an Academic setting.
The CHKD residency program has a strong relationship with our community pediatric practices. Our residents spend 2 one month rotations working with a general pediatrician in the community. These rotations offer the opportunity for the residents to experience the excitement, challenges and rewards of private practice.
