Pediatrics Residency Program
The Pediatrics Residency Program at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) 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 Pediatrics Residency Program at CHOP is one of cultivation. We believe that a physician becomes a well-trained pediatrician gradually. At the heart of our training is a focus on developing well-rounded physicians who embrace the core values of every Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia employee: integrity, compassion, accountability, respect and excellence.
CHOP's Residency Program is the keystone of our educational programs and patient care system. Residents are central to the missions of the CHOP Care Network, a network of more than 50 pediatric and adolescent primary and specialty care practices in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.
