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 follow their own panels of patients and experience firsthand the physical and emotional growth and development of children, preventive care and the management of acute and chronic medical conditions, and the interaction of children, families and physicians. Residents attend continuity clinic either one half day weekly or one full day weekly depending on level of training and rotation.
Rotational educational experiences are supplemented with a wide range of didactic conference experiences, including:
Noon Conferences (Daily 12:15 pm)
Grand Rounds (Tuesday 8:00 am)
