    Electives

    Available elective experiences at both Einstein Medical Center and our affiliate, St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children provide a vast array of opportunities to explore various specialties within pediatrics. Additionally, in the third year of training residents are allotted one elective to pursue at an institution of their choosing. This may be used internationally, nationally, or at one of the tertiary care children’s hospitals in the Philadelphia area.

Residents attend continuity clinic either one half day weekly or one full day weekly depending on level of training and rotation.
