Director of Ambulatory Care Service: Monique Collier, MD
Our ambulatory pediatric department has approximately 30,000 visits annually for well care visits, acute care and sub-specialty visits. Residents rotate through the various sub-specialty clinics tailored to your specific interests and have increased time for continuity clinic. Residents on outpatient rotations are exposed to extensive range of medical problems and are supervised by general pediatricians and sub-specialists. Residents learn to manage a child’s chronic and acute issues and to serve as an ally in health, advocate and educator for patients and their families. The primary care continuity clinic is a vital component of the pediatric residency program. Residents spend an average of half a day in the clinic and are paired with a team of pediatrician for all three years of the residency. Residents have the ability to follow patients from birth through their time at Lincoln. Attending physicians and residents work side side-by-side, creating an intimate learning environment. All faculty members have participated in a unique and innovative training program specifically designed to enhance their teaching skills. Since exposure to certain subspecialties is essential to pediatric practice, residents rotate through several required electives: Adolescent Medicine, Cardiology, Infectious Diseases, Hematology/ Oncology, and Neurology. Residents may choose other rotations to complement their own interests and needs. The ambulatory pediatric care department has earned the certification of TJC as a Pediatric Asthma Center of Excellence and has been the NYC DOH Immunizations Honor Roll.
