The Pediatric Surgery Residency at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin is a two-year clinical training program approved in 2002 by the ACGME. It was last reviewed in August, 2012 with ACGME accreditation received for 3 years. The curriculum includes comprehensive coverage of the scientific principles that are the basis for the practice of pediatric surgery. These are combined with structured operative and perioperative management of infants, children, and adolescents with problems managed in the contemporary practice of general and thoracic pediatric surgery. The clinical experience encompasses newborns, congenital anomalies, pediatric trauma, burns, critical care, surgical oncology, GI diseases, and the entire spectrum of abdominal, non-cardiac thoracic, urologic, and other clinical problems that fall within the scope of practice for pediatric surgery in the United States.
