schedule overview

Pediatric residents in the integrated program are able to work at Dayton Children's and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base Medical Center (WPMC). Through work at both locations, residents treat patients from different ethnic, socioeconomic and geographic settings. Each facility is staffed by a faculty of pediatric generalists and subspecialists who are recruited for their commitment to education. Both sites also provide pediatric training to medical students from the Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine and other primary care residency programs in the area. Inpatient rotations, emergency medicine, and most electives take place at Dayton Children’s Hospital. Ambulatory care, newborn nursery and adolescent months occur at the pediatric clinic at WPMC. Neonatology occurs at Miami Valley Hospital during the PL-1 year.

continuity clinic

Each resident participates in at least 18 full-day continuity clinics per academic year. The full day continuity clinic, rather than the traditional half-day, provides an improved focus on clinic-based learning. This provides a special experience for the resident to observe the physical, emotional and intellectual development of a child over an extended period of time. The resident is the primary care physician to healthy children as well as to those with chronic and acute illnesses.  The civilian residents’ continuity clinic takes place at the Connor Child Health Pavillion. Military residents’ continuity clinic takes place at the pediatric clinic at WPMC.

individualized education plans

Senior residents have the flexibility to create their own elective to meet the needs of their specific learning and career goals. Residents can use this time for research projects, medical education, rotations in private practices and additional subspecialty electives.

research and scholarly activity

Residents routinely engage in a variety of research and scholarly projects throughout their training including topics in clinical and translational research, medical education, and quality improvement. While completion of a research project is not required, we encourage our residents to collaborate with faculty in original or on-going projects, especially during elective rotations. Resident scholarly endeavors result in opportunities to present findings at national and regional meetings as well as publication in peer-reviewed journals.
