Our goal is to provide the best education and training for current and future pediatricians and providers of care to children.
Some of the regularly scheduled educational opportunities offered:
FIRM Rounds: weekly multidepartmental conference where trainees experience varied approaches to difficult cases
Grand Rounds: weekly presentation of current developments in the field by faculty and visiting professors
Outcomes Review: department-wide conference reviewing cases with the aim of improving the delivery of care
Continuing Medical Education: the “Pediatric Pearls” series offers specialty-based continuing medical education courses
The Department of Pediatrics strives to create and maintain training programs that mirror the diverse patient population we serve in Chicago. We believe that diverse faculty, residency and fellowship programs are essential to our long-term success as leaders in academic medicine.
We offer a wide range of resources, mentorship opportunities and formal training programs to help our residents and fellows excel as physician-scientists. Explore all of the resources and hear from housestaff who are making research a major part of their career development plans.
