Pediatric Residency Program
LETTER FROM THE PROGRAM DIRECTOR
Welcome to the Pediatric Residency Training Program at OHSU in Portland, OR. Our training program has a long history of excellence, which contributes to the reputation of Doernbecher Children's Hospital as an outstanding clinical, teaching, and research institution in the great Pacific Northwest.
The size of our program affords us the distinct opportunity to provide individualized attention to each resident and because of this; we are able to help every resident achieve their greatest potential. We believe in fostering an educational environment that encourages autonomy and independent decision-making with appropriate supervision and mentoring by attending staff. We challenge our resident sand expect them to be active learners and participate fully in their education.
Portland, Oregon is a wonderful pace to live, offering recreational opportunities that extend from the Pacific Ocean beaches to the Cascade Mountains. This provides us many opportunities to encourage resident wellness. By helping our residents learn to balance their clinical and educational responsibilities as well as their responsibility to their own person wellness, we create an atmosphere that gives rise to success. I hope that after you read what OHSU has to offer in pediatric training, you will visit us to take a closer look.
Cindy Ferrell, MD, MSEd
Residency Program Director
