The NYC Health + Hospitals/Woodhull Pediatric Residency Program is an ACGME-accredited categorical pediatrics program with 30 positions. Our program has academic affiliations with New York University School of Medicine and SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University.
Our mission is to graduate highly qualified pediatricians who promote the health and well-being of children in the community, provide safe and high-quality care in underserved communities with limited resources and treat each patient with compassion, dignity and cultural sensitivity regardless of the ability to pay.
We offer a three-year path to achieve broad clinical competency in general pediatrics. Our program provides comprehensive training in primary care with exposure to a variety of clinical cases from our diverse community as well as elective and tertiary care experience at our academic affiliates and our graduating residents enter outstanding fellowships and primary care positions throughout the country. The size of our program affords us the distinct opportunity to provide individualized attention to each resident and to help each resident maximize their potential.
We believe in fostering an educational environment that encourages autonomy and independent decision-making with appropriate supervision and mentoring by attending staff. We challenge our residents and expect them to be active learners and participate fully in their education.
We are confident that by the end of your training you would have acquired the knowledge and skills necessary to be a successful general pediatrician. Click here for information on How to apply to the Pediatric Program.
