Residency Overview

The University of Kansas Pediatrics Residency Program is committed to providing evidence-based, compassionate care to patients and families in a clinical learning environment that supports the professional and personal development of all learners.

A diverse faculty of both general pediatricians and subspecialists leads our teaching, mentoring, research and clinical activities. Faculty and residents work together, challenge each other and support each other in today's ever changing and dynamic health care environment.

Why KU?

  • Innovative teaching methods complement residents' learning styles.
  • Opportunities for research, international experiences and flexible rotations support individual professional and personal goals.
  • New and remodeled facilities including an integrated EMR contributes to our ability to provide high quality care in all of clinical locations including Outpatient Clinics, Inpatient Pediatrics Unit and PICU, a Baby Friendly Newborn Nursery and NICU.  Each clinical area provides state of the art resources needed to care for infants, children, adolescents and their families.
  • Kansas City is a wonderful city in which to live, work and raise a family. It is a playground for lovers of sports, music, theater, the arts and the great outdoors.
