Our residents have a weekly half-day continuity clinic where they learn the basics of primary care and community pediatrics. Residents can attend one of two urban clinics, the Downtown Health Center and the 16th Street Clinic, or one of several pediatric practices in Milwaukee and its suburbs. Residents are excused from all other patient care responsibilities when in clinic.
Most clinics are approximately 10-20 minutes from the main Children's Hospital location.

"My favorite thing about being an MCW pediatric resident is my continuity clinic, where I get to see a wide variety of patients and feel very supported to learn."
– Maya Katusic, MCW pediatric resident, class of 2017
