  • The "Career Paths" are made up of six rotations and provide an individualizable portion of the curriculum, intended to enhance each resident’s pediatric training based on their specific educational needs and interests or to address deficiencies in knowledge and skills expected to be attained during the 30 Core pediatric Rotations
  • Each path has been developed by a consensus of pediatricians practicing in the field and agreed upon by the housestaff Resident Curriculum Committee and Faculty Steering Committee
    • Within each path there are required rotations deemed essential to that career path and “selective rotations” in which residents can choose additional Subspecialty or Elective rotations felt to be useful for their career goals, or educational interests. 
    • For each subspecialty there will be a list of recommended rotations to assist residents and their faculty advisors choose rotations best suited to the residents’ career goals and educational needs. 
      • These lists are suggestions, and residents are free to choose other rotations if they would be more educationally beneficial.
  • “Career Paths” may be selected during the second half of the intern year, or anytime thereafter.  Until otherwise specified, residents will be assigned to the General Pediatrics Career Path, in order to assure a broad education and guidance for rotation selection.  Because these are intended to assist residents in rotation choices, residents are not obligated to remain in a given career path, but are free to "switch tracks" if their future goals shoud change.
  •  The Career Paths are independent of the Global Health track - meaning that participation in one does not preclude the other.  Residents participating in the Global Health Track wil use one of Additional Electives from thier chosen career path for their 1 month Global Health Rotation in their PGY-3 year.
