Pediatric Residency

Curriculum

Residency at Janet Weis Children’s Hospital (JWCH) is a comprehensive experience that encompasses both inpatient and outpatient areas, general pediatrics and sub-specialty care. Programs are structured based on individual goals, desires and motivations. In the end, residents leave with a solid base of knowledge and experience – that’s if they leave at all. Many JWCH residents stay for staff positions.
