Irène Said Yes to Pediatrics: The Benefits of a Pediatric Residency

In this video, Irène Mathieu, MD, third-year resident in General Pediatrics and Global Health at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) describes what led her to pursue a residency in pediatrics, details the vast breadth and depth of opportunities available in the field, highlights the strengths of CHOP’s Pediatrics Residency Program, and demonstrates the honor and joy of working with children and their families. The video ends with Dr. Mathieu — a published poet — reading a poem she wrote based on an experience she had during residency, a poignant example of the power of medicine as both art and science.
