PL-3 Year

The PL-3 year is designed to further refine patient care skills, expand medical knowledge, develop supervisory and teaching skills, and to utilize elective time to explore individual interests.  At the completion of this final year, our residents have developed into outstanding clinicians and are very well-prepared to enter practice as primary care or hospital-based pediatricians, to begin subspecialty training or to pursue any other clinical or research training of their choosing.
