Second-year residents will see many of the same services from PGY-1, as well as spending time in the PICU, Behavioral/Development Pediatrics and several elective rotations.

PGY-3

As a third-year resident, you will again spend time on general services from other residency years and will also focus on Community Pediatrics, Adolescent Medicine and additional electives of your choice.

Scholarly activity 

Our formal didactic series occurs on Wednesday afternoons with four hours of protected lecture time. Pediatric attending staff and all off-service rotation attendings are aware that our residents will be at didactics duirng this time every week. Didactics usually consists of core lectures and presentations from residents, faculty, staff and guest lecturers. A mix of case presentations, lectures and lively, interactive discussions keep these sessions engaging and fresh.

Journal Club is held monthly. Journal articles will be discussed under close supervision of faculty members. Residents will learn to critique medical literature and learn from recent advances in medicine.

Simulation training is provided to enhance the residents’ skills on specific procedures. This program has a dedicated faculty member and will give you an opportunity to learn in a risk-free environment in order to demonstrate a level of competency prior to entering the clinical setting.
