Residency Overview

The University of Kansas Pediatrics Residency Program is committed to patients and families as well as to medical students, residents and each other.

An influx of new faculty, general pediatricians and subspecialists alike, has invigorated our teaching, mentoring, research and clinical activities. Faculty and residents work together to create a learning environment that is dynamic, challenging, supportive and rewarding.

Why choose KU?

  • New and innovative teaching methods complement residents' learning styles.
  • Opportunities for research, international experiences and flexible rotations provide an environment supportive of individual professional and personal goals.
  • New facilities opened in 2011 - a seamless inpatient-outpatient  EMR system  contributes to our ability to provide evidence based care in all of our clinical locations including our recently - remodeled Inpatient Pediatrics Unit and PICU and our newly remodled NICU.  Each unit provides the state of the art resources needed to care for our expanding clinical services.
  • 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.
