Resident education is a priority at our program. We have regularly scheduled education activities, didactics, and case based conferences. The goal of our educational curriculum is to teach our residents strong clinical and problem-solving skills. The curriculum is designed to improve the knowledge base of the residents as they prepare for the American Board of Pediatrics Certifying Examination.
Our inpatient experiences occur at Children’s Hospital of University of Illinois (CHUI), a 100-bed children’s hospital. Pediatric Care at CHUI includes a tertiary care inpatient unit, a level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, and a high-volume normal newborn nursery. CHUI caters to a diverse population, providing primary care to the surrounding urban community while also serving as a tertiary pediatric referral center.
Our program is housed within the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Chicago, the largest medical school in Illinois. The UIC campus is located directly west of the Chicago Loop in an area that includes two historic neighborhoods, as well as the Illinois Medical District—the world’s largest concentration of advanced public and private health care facilities.
