About the Section

The Department of Pediatrics at the University of Chicago is involved in teaching, service and research in virtually every aspect of pediatric disease, child health care and health disparities. We provide trainees with opportunities for different career directions, whether in general practice, subspecialties or research. We offer a three-year residency training program in general pediatrics that combines both inpatient and outpatient experiences, caring for some of the country’s most challenging patients. From the intensive care and inpatient service to the LaRabida Hospital experience of caring for children with chronic diseases, residents are exposed to a wide variety of both normal development and pediatric pathology.
