St. Louis Children’s Hospital has been the training grounds for hundreds of general pediatricians, pediatric specialists, clinician-investigators, division directors, Chairmen and medical school Deans for more than a century. As one of the major medical centers in the United States, St. Louis Children’s Hospital and Washington University offer a unique opportunity for physicians to obtain comprehensive pediatric training in a world-class setting. Learning is hands on, at the bedside, doing instead of sitting. Whether we help prepare trainees for a career in General Pediatrics or as a physician-scientist in a Pediatric subspecialty, residents leave our program feeling fully prepared to take on any career path.
