NYC Health + Hospitals/Lincoln is dedicated to training and fostering the development of extraordinary pediatricians. Our balanced and flexible curriculum provides the cognitive and practical skills that are necessary to provide high quality comprehensive and acute health care to infants, children, and adolescents. The residency also provides an excellent foundation for future training. Our graduates go on to a wide variety of careers, including academic medicine, primary care practice, pediatric subspecialties, public health, and child advocacy. We train seventeen residents in each year of training.
The primary learning experience for all house staff is patient-based. We have a complex and diverse patient population representative of the community we serve. This provides a rich and valuable experience. Aside from rotating at Lincoln, pediatrics residents will also experience other academic hospital settings for specialized services including pediatric intensive care, cardiology, surgery, nephrology, hematology and oncology. Residents have the opportunity to rotate at our affiliates: Memorial Sloan Kettering, Weill Cornell, and Children’s Hospital at Montefiore.
The residency program strives to develop the full potential of each resident. As a resident in our program you will have access to mentorship, support and guidance from faculty during the three years of training. In fact, many of our pediatric and subspecialty attendings are former residents. We strive to meet the needs of our population by a commitment to diversity among our trainees, faculty, and staff. We are continuously evaluating and discovering new and innovative ways to educate and provide feedback for residents to utilize throughout their careers. During your time at Lincoln you will be surrounded by exceptional pediatricians who will always prioritize resident education and well-being.
