Training Tomorrow’s Pediatricians

To restore, sustain, and enhance the health and developmental potential of children through excellence in care, education, research and advocacy.


The goal of the UCSD Pediatric Residency Program is to train residents in the practice of general and subspecialty pediatrics. Our mission is to develop today's residents to become tomorrow's leaders in the field of pediatrics as clinicians, scientists, advocates, and teachers. We approach training with emphasis on excellence in patient care, a spirit of inquisitiveness through exposure to research and quality improvement curricula, and a willingness to share knowledge with others.
