Message from the Program Director

Thank you for your interest in the Pediatric Residency Program at NYU Winthrop Hospital. Our program is extremely well poised to deliver the ACGME mandated curriculum, and meet the individual needs and goals of our residents. Our residents care for a diverse patient population and are exposed to a wide variety of disease pathology. This experience prepares them well for their chosen career, whether as a generalist or a specialist, hospital-based or office-based. Our faculty are recognized for both their academic excellence as well as their clinical skill. They are an enthusiastic, talented, energetic group of physicians who love what they do. If you ask our residents what they like most about our program, the answer in unison would be the camaraderie that they have with faculty, fellow residents and nurses. Residents feel supported and guided in a friendly non-judgmental environment as they make important decisions, whether it is about patient care or their careers. As they gain experience, residents are encouraged to take on more leadership roles and make more decisions about the care of their patients under the supervision of faculty. This enhances learning, prepares the residents for independent practice and produces excellence.

At NYU Winthrop Hospital, we are extremely proud of being innovative and embracing changes in residency education in our program. We have developed an individualized curriculum for each resident based on his or her personal career goals and learning needs. Pediatric residents participate in a variety of quality improvement projects and we have instituted a robust patient safety and medical errors curriculum. Our residents also take an active part in shaping their own educational experience through participation in educational, wellness, and diversity and inclusion committees within the department as well as on institutional level committees.

Your education and well-being will be a priority at NYU Winthrop Hospital. Our residents work hard but also have fun and develop lasting relationships during their three years of residency training. As a resident in our program, you will enjoy a high acuity, busy training environment and a culturally diverse patient population. At NYU Winthrop Hospital, you will work with an enthusiastic, friendly faculty with varied academic interests and alongside an exceptional group of people — your fellow residents!
