Resident Schedule2018-10-08T15:18:22+00:00

PICU At UIC, it is our goal that upon completion of their training, our residents have the tools necessary to care for pediatric patients in the acute setting with a wide range of pathology.  To achieve this goal, our residents gradually assume more supervisory responsibility as they progress through their training. We believe it is important to offer electives throughout residency, starting in their first year, allowing enough time for our residents to think about career choices. Residents are able to utilize an individualized curriculum including self-designed electives.

Residents can participate in the Global Health Experience during elective time in the PGY2 or PGY3 year.  The academic year is divided into 13 4-week blocks.  Each year, residents complete 12 4-week rotations, and they have 4 weeks of vacation.
