Leadership Opportunities


We encourage resident involvement on a wide variety of hospital and university committees as well as national organizations. Here are a few examples of additional opportunities within our program and university.

Resident Leadership Council

Comprised of Pediatric and Med/Peds residents who are elected by their peers, the members of this council act as liaisons between the residents and the Office of Medical Education (OME). These residents meet with the chief residents monthly, where they bring feedback from their fellow residents to the attention of the chief residents and program director. They directly participate in problem solving of any issues that arise during these meetings and also help relay important information from the OME to the residents.

House Staff Council

Two residents are elected to serve as Pediatrics representatives on a university-wide graduate medical education trainee council. More information.
