We believe an optimal educational program depends on a close faculty-resident relationship and a curriculum that provides a diverse clinical exposure and fosters individualization with a progression in resident responsibility and independence. The University of Florida residency curriculum is carefully designed to ensure the best for your education.

More than 180 faculty are available to the residents as mentors in patient care, teaching and research. The Pediatric Residency Program exposes residents to the full spectrum of pediatrics – from health maintenance and disease prevention in the well child to complex intensive care of sick children. Our program balances teaching conferences with hands-on, supervised learning and offers an excellent combination of inpatient and outpatient care.

There are 13 four-week rotations each year. Curriculum development is guided by the Program Evaluation Committee and Curriculum Sub-Committee, which acts by facilitating feedback from residents on curriculum issues and program direction. Its members include residents, faculty and community pediatricians. Curriculum changes are based on the program’s educational goals and guidelines set by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
