Our residency program has 13 residents per class, plus 2 chief residents. In addition to our wonderful, new, freestanding children’s hospital, our program has recently expanded to include global health electives (current rotation sites include Haiti, Uganda, Tanzania, Swaziland, and Lesotho) and public health/advocacy opportunities.
