Pediatric Resident Life

The Akron Zoo

The Akron Zoo

Physicians who choose Akron Children's for their pediatric residency program will not only be exposed to a fast-paced and rewarding training program, they'll also be a part of an active social community.

Even though residency training is a full-time job, our pediatric residents still find time to have fun together and enjoy the resources available in the greater Akron community. With larger cities and Lake Erie nearby, the cultural and outdoor activities are limitless.  

Our residential communities vary from urban settings to more rural communities, most within a 20- or 30-minute drive.  We also provide opportunities to serve locally as well as overseas, where the medical needs are significant.

Special Events

Organized events are held throughout the year for residents, including a resident-faculty softball game in the fall. The residents usually win the game each year with significant others and children of players serving as cheerleaders.

During the December Holiday Party, faculty cover clinical duties so the residents can celebrate the season by dancing the night away with their co-workers and significant others. To celebrate the end of the academic year, residents attend a “Fun Day” at a local country club where you can swim, play tennis, golf, and enjoy spa services.

Residents are also invited to the Noah Miller Recognition Dinner, the annual residency graduation, where the graduates’ accomplishments are celebrated by the faculty and their families. Faculty cover clinical services during this event so residents can attend.

Resident Volunteer Activities

Over the last several years the residents have volunteered to purchase ingredients and prepare meals for patient families at the Ronald McDonald House of Akron.
