Residency Program Alumni
At the conclusion of their training at Children’s Hospital, residents have a diverse choice of career paths. In the past, about half of our graduating residents have pursued a subspecialty fellowship, 40 percent a career in academic general pediatrics, and 10 percent a career in primary care pediatrics, both academic and general practice.
In addition, several of CHOP’s residents arrange to provide service abroad within cultures that match their specific interests. The rich network of international connections available at both Children’s Hospital and the University of Pennsylvania have resulted in post-residency study and service in such locations as Shanghai, St. George’s Island and Kenya.
