One of the key features of our program is that each resident is exposed to all subspecialty services.
Our program is dedicated to advocacy for children outside of the hospital and we have numerous opportunities for resident involvement. Experiences range from working with local NGOs, to partnering with Madison schools, to petitioning for legislation at the state capitol.
Being affiliated with an undergraduate facility, medical school, and school of public health, there is a plethora of grant-funded research with multiple opportunities for resident participation. Many residents present research at national conferences, and all residents present scholarly projects during our annual Research Week.
