Children's Hospital of Michigan's Pediatric Residency Training Program provides more than basic education.  We offer a well-rounded, balanced training experience for our country's finest medical school graduates.

As a resident in our program, you will receive a complete pediatric experience with a rich diversity of patients, many with serious and complex illnesses, that are cared for in an environment that is both academic and caring.  You will get hands-on training at one of the best pediatric teaching and research facilities in the country, with the unique benefit of our intense focus on family-centered care and psychosocial issues.

Our referral base includes all of Michigan, adjacent states and southern Ontario.  Three-fourths of the 14,778 annual admissions are to pediatric services, which includes pediatric and neonatal intensive care; hematology/oncology, nephrology, urology, neurology, cardiology, rehabilitation, and infectious diseases, as well as general pediatrics.

As a pediatric resident, under faculty supervision, you are responsible for the initial evaluation, workup and management of patients admitted to the pediatric service.  Your responsibilities increase with experience and demonstrated capabilities.  In addition to pediatric topics, our conferences cover ethics, practice management, chronic illness, managed care, risk management and legal issues, personal finance management, and teaching skills for residents and faculty.
