Pediatric Residency Program


GS_Peds center_MLK

Good Samaritan Hospital is proud to offer an outstanding residency program in Pediatrics while providing our residents with a balanced approach to professional and personal well-being. Residents train in a comfortable, supportive and friendly learning environment. They work with their colleagues under the direct supervision of attending physicians in primary care pediatrics and various pediatric subspecialties. The curriculum offers an excellent balance between primary care and the subspecialty education that graduates need to become excellent physicians.  A number of electives are offered so that individual residents may further explore their own additional areas of interest.

Continuity of care is provided within the structure of the Martin Luther King, Jr., Community Health Center, part of the Hudson River Health Organization. Providing care to an underserved patient population enriches the educational experience.  Residents work closely with attendings to ensure that each patient encounter is viewed as a teaching opportunity, with discussion of both medical and social issues.
The didactic needs of the house staff are met through lectures, Grand Rounds, Board Review, PI presentations, Core Competency lectures, research and statistics lectures, journal clubs, case presentations, and clinical teaching rounds. In addition, the House staff and students are expected to contribute to the educational process for each other.

As a pediatric resident you will feel comfortable learning in this friendly teaching environment. We pride ourselves in offering residents diverse clinical experiences, extraordinary teaching and the broadest range of patient services. The program helps develop the knowledge and skills necessary to become exceptional and versatile pediatricians who are qualified to provide the finest medical care to pediatric patients, while meeting the specific needs and career interests of each resident.
