Excelling in Child Healthcare Education

Shands at the University of FloridaWelcome to the Pediatric Residency Program at the University of Florida. We invite you to explore our pediatric residency training program and to learn more about what we have to offer.

The field of pediatrics is changing due to the complexity of the children seen, the technologies available for pediatric care, and the clinical models that we apply. There are also new demands placed upon practitioners due to the skills necessary for clinical and biomedical research exceeding those needed just a decade ago. As such, current models of pediatric residency training need new directions to meet the needs of children and society.

Working within the guidelines mandated by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), we proudly announce new opportunities for training in pediatrics with the creation of novel residency tracks at UF Health Shands Children's Hospital.
