Pediatric Residency Program
Mount Sinai’s Pediatric Residency Program Chicago makes its goal the fostering and fully equipping of residents who want to practice primary-care pediatrics in an urban, medically underserved environment. Through our unique focus and unique aspects of our curriculum, we’re able to offer pediatric residents the kind of training that exposes them to the breadth and depth of pediatric health care—both in terms of their patients and of their surrounding communities.
Brief Overview of Program
The Department of Pediatrics at Mount Sinai Hospital is a dynamic department led by a team passionate about caring for the underserved. Our residency program’s structure and organization reflects that mission—from the first year’s Child Advocacy rotation to the third year’s elective month that allows residents to serve in a Third World country. In the midst of a pediatric department with 24 beds, over 2000 annual admissions and over 3200 annual births, our residents learn not only how to better care for children’s medical problems but also how to creatively address underlying conditions that could have been prevented.
