Welcome to the Pediatric Residency Training Program at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU)/Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland. We are excited that you are considering us for your residency training.
Our pediatric residency program has a long history of excellence in training well-rounded pediatricians. The program fosters a learning environment in which each resident can explore and define their preferred career path. It encourages residents to engage with faculty and other personnel in multiple clinical settings. It offers supplemental instruction and educational opportunities in pediatrics such that residents make integral contributions towards the research, advocacy and clinical missions of the institution. An emphasis on faculty mentoring inspires residents in scholarly activities in quality improvement, child advocacy, global health and research. Resident fulfillment in this balanced program results in life-long learners committed to advancing the health of children.
The medium size of the program allows the faculty to know residents well, providing distinct advantages in developing competent and confident pediatricians. Faculty work with residents repeatedly over time and tailor experiences to enhance individual skills. Our residents thereby develop autonomy early in their training and are recognized throughout the pediatric community for their teamwork with fellow residents, students and other caregivers. Our trainees work hard, learn hard and play hard during their time at Doernbecher and leave well-equipped for the next phase in their career, be it independent practice or fellowship training.
We hope this website will give you a give you a glimpse into our residency program family, the curriculum, our city, and details about our interview day. Please let us know if you have any questions regarding this our training program. We hope to meet you soon!
