Meet Our Residents

With a shared passion for pediatric care and a determination to shape its future, our residents form an inclusive, welcoming and mutually supportive group with which to work and learn.

I feel really close to my attendings. Coming in to a brand new institution, you can feel pretty intimidated. I never felt that way here. They are encouraging of learning and want to make us the best physicians we can be.
