Approximately one-half of your time is devoted to the service at Community Regional Medical Center's ambulatory pediatric services in the Children’s Health Center. In this setting, residents, pediatric nurse practitioners, nurses, licensed clinical social workers and experienced attending physicians form a team to provide excellence in patient care and practical bedside education. Because you spend one half-day a week in your continuity clinic for three years, you are assured of volume and diversity of patients in primary and secondary outpatient care. Community Regional Medical Center is also the home of Regional Pediatric Special Services (HIV) and Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Programs.
Rotations in community pediatrics, child development and behavioral pediatrics, and adolescent medicine in the first and second years are dedicated to ensuring you acquire a strong base in the behavioral and social aspects of pediatrics.
Specialty rotations at Community Regional Medical Center and Valley Children's Hospital provide educational opportunities in: cardiology, critical care, emergency medicine, endocrinology, gastroenterology, genetics, hematology, immunology, infectious disease, metabolics, neonatology, nephrology, neurology, oncology, orthopedics, pulmonology, rehabilitation, rheumatology, surgery and urology. The small program size and the absence of fellows, allows a close relationship between caring subspecialists and residents. Electives are also available at UCSF's campuses in San Francisco and Oakland.
