CRMC = Community Regional Medical Center, VCH = Valley Children’s Hospital

  • Each resident has weekly teamed based continuity except on nights, vacation, and call free
  • Research is incorporated into various rotations over the 3 year curriculum
  • Each resident rotates locally in Child Development, Adolescent Medicine, and Community Medicine over the three years, which allows exposure to a strong base in the behavioral and social aspects of pediatrics.
  • The above is subject to change based on ACGME, UCSF and Pediatric Residency Program Requirements
