During the first year of residency you are the primary physician to BronxCare patients. Perhaps more than at any other hospital, you gain essential experience with many kinds of medical patients by taking responsibility for them in the hospital and by recruiting them for your office practice, where you follow them throughout your residency.

 

During the first year, you will rotate through a range of pediatric and subspecialty rotations while maintaining an active practice in the general outpatient setting one day a week. You will also complete a block rotation in community pediatrics.

A typical day on the ward for the first year resident during these months combines experience and didactic learning:

 

  7:00 - 8:00 a.m.                    Work Rounds

  8:00 - 9:00 a.m.                    Required Educational Activity

  9:00 - 11:00 a.m.                  Attending Rounds

Call and Night Shift:

The Department of Pediatrics fully complies with ACGME guidelines and New York State regulations restricting work hours for residents.

In addition interns are scheduled to two full weekend ED calls plus four short (5-10pm) ED calls.
