At the University of Chicago, we prioritize advanced, evidence-based medical education with mindful acknowledgment and exploration of structural inequities. Residents, fellows, and faculty in the Department of Pediatrics share a commitment to teaching through learning experiences, bedside teaching, and didactic sessions. In addition to your core pediatric education, you can choose to apply to one of four scholarship tracks to supplement your education.
