Pediatric Education commiteed to providing the best, most comprehensive Pediatric Education
The Department seeks to capitalize on our unique position in being on the research campus of the University of Florida to offer comprehensive training in pediatrics- not only for medical students, residents, and fellows — but also to other disciplines such as nursing, advanced practice providers, respiratory therapists, and others to establish and support future leaders in our field.
Our goal is to provide an educational program that helps prepare our students for any residency they may choose as part of the general professional education.
The goal of the residency program in Pediatrics is to “provide educational experiences in the diversified field of Pediatrics in an intellectual environment conducive to learning the exemplary practice of Pediatrics.”
The University of Florida Department of Pediatrics Fellowship programs are certified in post-graduate education by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
