The Pediatric Residency Program at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is a three-year program, accredited by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education, leading to certification in General Pediatrics by the American Board of Pediatrics.
The central idea of the Pediatric Residency Program at CHOP is one of cultivation. We believe that a physician becomes a well-trained pediatrician gradually, with supervision and support that allows the resident to take on responsibility in stages. The faculty at Children's Hospital is large enough to extend this kind of support to its residents, allowing them to grow into the leadership role that culminates their training during their third year.
Daily teaching rounds and conferences, together with frequent conversations with attending physicians and senior house staff, immerse the resident in an ongoing discussion of cases. In their senior year, all residents attend morning report with a changing mix of faculty members who join them each day to discuss cases and hone diagnostic and management skills.
