Pediatric Residency Program

Pediatric Residency

Akron Children's pediatric residency program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), and affiliated with Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) in Rootstown, Ohio.

Our program stresses the role of the pediatrician as a lifelong learner and an educator of patients, families and other healthcare providers, as well as an advocate for issues affecting infants, children and teens.

We also focus on the development of a resident's medical knowledge, clinical skills, professionalism, and interpersonal and communication skills.

Because we emphasize community-based primary care pediatrics, our residents’ continuity clinics are in local pediatricians' offices in urban and suburban sites. Residents also have the opportunity to work with underserved children, including an immigrant population and children in foster care.

Our residents are well prepared to pursue subspecialty fellowships if they desire. They are exposed to a variety of pediatric subspecialties and encouraged to pursue research projects with subspecialists in their area of interest.

We encourage 4th-year medical students to become more acquainted with our program through a sub-internship on one of our inpatient units. We also offer electives in a multitude of subspecialties. However, we do not sponsor externships.
