Education Resources

Clinical Training occurs at the regional children's center, compromised of the:

the
Child Health Institute of New Jersey
Bristol Myers Squibb Children's Hospital and Children's Specialized Hospital

Resident continuity clinic is at:

Eric B Chandler Health Care Center or the RWJ Medical Group site in Somerset, NJ.

Residents serve as the primary providers at all sites, supervised by attending physicians. The wide breadth of clinical experiences allows the resident to be involved with all aspects of the care of a child, from a well child visit to the management of respiratory failure to the care of a child or infant recovering from a prolonged illness. Our graduates are well positioned to become primary care providers or to move on to pediatric fellowships.

Clinical training is supplemented by weekly pediatric grand rounds and case conferences, a repeating series of didactic lectures each summer and weekly block lectures. Residents are excused from clinical responsibilities to attend educational events. Faculty also give individualized lectures to residents who are rotating on elective with their service. Other lectures and conferences throughout the department and medical school are open to the residents to attend, depending on their interests. A typical calendar of events can be found here. Residents also receive membership in the American Academy of Pediatrics with access to the Pedialink Learning Center and they also have access to the extensive electronic resources available through the medical school's library.
