Pediatric Residency Tracks

Optional study tracks

Each Track permits residents to use elective rotations to complete requirements that are designed to prepare them for specific careers.

Residents who complete the requirements will earn a certificate of completion at the end of their residency training, confirming their participation in an enriched residency curriculum.

Each Track includes a few required experiences, a required scholarly project, a monthly "track day" during the noon conference curriculum, suggested activities for educational and administrative development and faculty mentorship.

Our program offers six (6) Tracks:

It is our intent that these tracks be completely flexible, permitting each resident to individualize their training in the way that is best for them. Our program is fully committed to supporting the individual interests and goals of each resident, while making sure that all residents complete the training requirements of the American Board of Pediatrics and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

"My favorite thing about being an MCW pediatric resident is that we have the opportunity here to take care of an incredible variety of patients. This allows us as residents to gain experience in managing common pediatric conditions as well as rare and complex medical conditions."

– Rachel Sullivan, MCW pediatric resident, class of 2017
