Current Residents

Current residents in Mount Sinai’s Department of Pediatrics gain unique knowledge about caring for children in urban, medically underserved environments.

Through our three-year residency program, pediatric residents see how physicians can impact their communities by identifying resources for preventative care; gain exposure to venues for child advocacy; dive into an almost total-immersion experience in ambulatory pediatrics at a clinic that is almost entirely Spanish-speaking; and have the opportunity to spent a month’s rotation in a Third World country. Graduates leave our program with a broadened perspective on the diseases of poverty in inner-city environments, and many go on to practice care in medically underserved communities throughout the United States and the world at large.
