This Resident Policy Manual is designed to improve the quality of patient care, minimize conflicts, equalize burdens, and allow you to spend more time and energy on your basic goal–that of learning the art and science of Pediatrics. That is why both you and we are here. “Training begins with a task, and learning begins with a question.” In this program, you will find both in abundance.
We are available day and night, and we will be happy to talk with each of you about anything at any time. As Chairman and Director of the Pediatrics Residency Program, it is our responsibility to provide the opportunities for your education and to finally place the stamp of completion on your residency documents. We look forward to the coming year.
Nicole Black, M.D.
