Our Hospital & Training Sites

Pediatric Residency Program

Phoenix Children's/Maricopa Medical Center Pediatric Residency is a comprehensive, fully-accredited, three-year program. It combines experiences at a major multi-specialty children’s hospital (Phoenix Children’s) and a large public medical center (Maricopa Medical Center). These hospitals serve the city of Phoenix and the surrounding Metropolitan area with a current population of approximately 5 million. Set in a multi-cultural location our residents are given the opportunity to work with Native American, Hispanic and diverse refugee populations.

Children are transferred to our hospitals from all over Arizona. The patient referral base provides our residents with an abundance of clinical experiences. Representing all areas of general and subspecialty pediatrics, the faculty is highly trained committed and very accessible to the house staff. There is a strong emphasis on teaching among both faculty and residents, with camaraderie and a pervasive team spirit throughout the program.

A personal tour of our facilities is welcomed. Residents at all levels of training, as well as faculty, are available to share information about our training programs.
