Pediatric Residency Program
The Pediatric Residency Program at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) is a three-year program, accredited by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education, leading to certification in General Pediatrics by the American Board of Pediatrics. The central idea of the Pediatric Residency Program at CHOP is one of cultivation. We believe that a physician becomes a well-trained pediatrician gradually.
CHOP's Residency Program is the keystone of our educational programs and patient care system. Residents are central to the missions of the CHOP Care Network, a network of more than 50 pediatric and adolescent primary and specialty care practices in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.
