We're a fully accredited PDF document medium sized residency program with a substantial referral area. As the only pediatric medical center in 17 counties—one of the largest geographic referral areas in the state—our residents care for a large number of children with a great variety of problems; from healthy newborn infants to adolescents with rare and complex subspecialty concerns.

Our residents come from a wide range of backgrounds and they establish tight relationships with each other and our faculty and staff, as they become part of our family here in Syracuse. We try to attract residents whose broad and diverse interests and backgrounds match well with our team, placing a premium on personality, communication skills and open-mindedness.

Patients come from an inner-city underserved populations to the suburban middle/upper class. There are patients from the rural regions of the state to immigrant refugees from Europe, Asia, and Africa. Our residents care for these patients under the direction of a dedicated, accessible, and personable faculty. There's a lot to learn from fascinating patients in a welcoming, yet challenging environment. We have additional international health opportunities available to residents who are interested in this field of medicine.

Whatever your goals, we will help you achieve them. So browse our pages and learn more about our training, our facilities, our city, and more importantly, the lives of the people who make this program an outstanding place for resident training.
