During the first year paediatric residents have three four-week blocks on the Paediatric Medicine In-patient Unit, four weeks in an ambulatory rotation and four weeks at a community hospital.
During the third year, paediatric residents have an eight week rotation as the senior supervising resident on the Paediatric Medicine In-patient Unit, four weeks in an ambulatory rotation and have an elective that might be at a community hospital or in a private paediatrician’s office.
During the fourth year, paediatric residents are supervised by Division members on the Paediatric Medicine Consult Team (in-patient consultation to surgical and medical subspecialties). Fourth year residents may select a rotation on the Clinical Practice Unit or in a private pediatrician’s office. Many fourth year paediatric residents attend a continuity clinic in the Paediatric Consultation Clinic supervised by Division members.
