Welcome to the University of Arizona Department of Pediatrics! We are dedicated to excellence in patient care, teaching and research.
The goal of our training program is to provide residents with a comprehensive, personally rewarding educational experience that prepares them for any career in pediatrics, be it private practice, academic fellowship or public health.
The program combines required rotations along with extensive individualized experiences that allow each resident to pursue his or her interests in depth. There is much collaboration between the community and the University, and residents benefit with so many educational and clinical opportunities. Outpatient ambulatory care sites are varied, and inpatient experiences boast exposure to extensive pathology. We are fortunate to care for a diverse patient population who calls Tucson home.
We are an academic residency program with high standards of education, clinical practice, and research quality. The Department's commitment to education is demonstrated by the fact that it has frequently received numerous teaching awards from UA medical students. Residents are involved in scholarly activity and every year more than several residents present their work at national conferences, often as an invited oral presentation. The faculty are always available for consultation, discussion and support. A faculty advisor is assigned to each resident providing advice, feedback, and friendship. Housestaff retreats, wellness programs, and a liberal vacation and holiday policy augment resident well-being.
I like to think we are a family that has come together with the common goal of educating ourselves in taking the best care of our pediatric patients and striving for ongoing innovation and advancement of medicine. There is always something to learn, and learning in such a rich environment is amazing.
We invite you to consider our program. Please contact any of us with your questions or if you want further information.
