Clinical rotations are composed of  four week blocks. There are 13 clinical rotations per year of training.

During the academic year, residents are also assigned one half day per week in general pediatric continuity clinic. All clinics are held on site. In addition to three weeks of vacation, each resident gets to choose a six day vacation block over the winter break.

In addition to a strong set of core rotations, we have added specialty tracts to comply with the Next Accreditation System.
