Program Mission and Aims

Mission Statement

Our mission is to train pediatricians who will be competent in addressing the wellbeing and healthcare needs of all children, through excellence in clinical care, education, scholarship and community advocacy.

Program Aims

The aims for the pediatric residency are listed below:

  • Train residents prepared to meet the unique needs of the populations they serve, not only as astute clinicians, but also as leaders through involvement in community service, advocacy and education.
  • Train residents well equipped to practice value based, quality health care with hands on training in quality improvement and patient safety throughout residency.
  • Educate learners who thrive in an environment of constant inquiry and are well versed in the basics of scholarship and research, given that fifty percent of our residents become community and general pediatricians (including hospital medicine), while the other half pursue subspecialty academic pathways.
  • Strive to provide an environment that promotes learning and academic growth through evidence based teaching, 360 evaluation and feedback process, while also promoting resident wellness and resilience.
