UTHSC Pediatric Residency Program

Each year a group of bright and fascinating people from across the country are drawn to our friendly, educational environment. As you prepare to decide where you would like to pursue your pediatric training, we thank you for looking at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center and Le Bonheur Children's Hospital.

Our residency program is committed to providing trainees with the unique clinical experiences and educational opportunities that will prepare them to pursue any type of pediatric career. During their training, our residents develop a solid foundation in general pediatrics. While our residents are trained to provide excellent pediatric care, they are also encouraged to participate in organized programs that improve the safety and health care accessibility for all children. Furthermore, our residents play significant roles in the management of subspecialty pediatric care.

Throughout residency, our residents develop close relationships with our diverse, dedicated faculty. Every effort is made to provide support for residents while encouraging autonomy and responsibility. Opportunities for pursuit of special interests are provided, particularly during the second and third years. The department also offers extensive post-residency training with subspecialty fellowship programs in twelve different fields.

We hope you take the time to review our information online. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. We look forward to meeting you!
