Primary Care Track
This track is for those physicians intending to enter general pediatrics. The “medical home” is the primary care hub where the health care of children is centered, and pediatricians work with subspecialists to coordinate tertiary care. Through primary care, pediatricians are expected to have training in common pediatric subspecialties, including pulmonology, cardiology, gastroenterology, and endocrinology, to name few. Physicians in this track must be able to collaborate with other disciplines, understand the epidemiology of childhood illness, and work with new treatments and modalities within the changing health care environment. Residents will enhance their pediatrics subspecialty training by participating in electives and receive training in bioinformatics, transition of care, and health care policy.
