Our pediatric residency program provides you with comprehensive training that prepares you for pediatrics in the 21st century. You will receive this training whether you choose to be a generalist in primary care or a pediatric subspecialist.
Our residents benefit from the diverse clinical experience offered by UBMD Pediatrics and Oishei Children’s Hospital and the academic environment provided by the teaching faculty of the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.
Our program focuses on evidence-based medicine and critical thinking. This is demonstrated during journal club and resident research projects and throughout our faculty-led lecture series. The goal is to train excellent pediatricians who are able to apply the fundamentals of evidence-based medicine to guide their clinical decisions.
Subspecialty rotations are crucial to our residency experience and provide you with both broad and deep exposure to all areas of pediatrics. These rotations include weekly clinic sessions and didactic encounters.
Pediatric residents also rotate through our state-of-the-art Level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, which provide critical care (including ECMO) for infants, children and adolescents. There is a full complement of critical-care faculty, as well as pediatric subspecialty consultants and pediatric surgical subspecialties. As a Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center, residents are exposed to acute and chronic management of pediatric trauma patients.
Our continuity clinic program includes experiences in one of eight locations. The main continuity care clinic is located on the hospital campus and is operated by the Division of General Pediatrics. There is an additional hospital-based campus located 15 minutes from the hospital as well as six private pediatric practices, located within the community, that embrace pediatric residents as an integral part of their staff. With the 4+1 schedule, residents attend continuity clinic every five weeks for one week.
Residents are taught by 100 dedicated faculty members whose approach to teaching ensures that the knowledge they impart has a strong scientific foundation, as well as the humanism necessary for the development of a highly competent, caring pediatrician.
These physicians include primary care specialists, pediatric surgeons and a full complement of pediatric subspecialists. Hospital pediatric radiologists also fully participate in resident education.
Beyond our focus on teaching and patient care, our internationally recognized faculty receive significant, ongoing extramural grant funding and have made notable contributions to pediatric research.
Our department is located on the 2nd floor of Conventus in the Oishei Children’s Outpatient Center and next to the new Oishei Children’s Hospital (formerly Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo). The hospital has a long history of affiliation with the University at Buffalo as a primary teaching site for medical students and residents.
