Program Overview

The Pediatric Residency Training Program of the Icahn School of Medicine offers a balanced training approach that provides outstanding exposure to subspecialty medicine and primary care pediatrics. Our extensive ambulatory curriculum and approximately 15% dedicated continuity training time, coupled with our traditional strengths in inpatient and subspecialty care, allows us to train primary care physicians able to practice high quality General Pediatrics, as well as the next generation of teachers and scientists. Our graduates go on to a wide variety of careers in academic medicine, primary care practice, and public health.

The program is situated in the Mount Sinai Kravis Children's Hospital and has been continuously accredited since 1927. The Jack and Lucy Clark Department of Pediatrics was founded in 1878 by Dr. Abraham Jacobi, the nation's first pediatrician. This was the first pediatric department in New York City, and the second in the United States. It comprises 20 divisions, representing all aspects of pediatric medicine. There are also attendings in Pediatric Anesthesiology, Surgery, Pathology, Psychiatry, Radiology, Ophthalmology, Otolaryngology, Orthopedics, and Urology.

Pediatric intern house officers are chosen exclusively through the National Intern and Resident Matching Program (NRMP). There are a total of 21 PGY-1 positions comprised of two positions in Pediatric Research track, two positions in the combined five-year Triple Board Program (Pediatrics, Psychiatry, and Child Psychiatry), one to two positions in the combined Medical Genetics Pediatric Training Program, two positions for Pediatric Neurology preliminary candidates, and the remaining 15-19 positions reserved for categorical trainees.

The Department of Pediatrics also offers a wide variety of post residency fellowships in many pediatric subspecialty areas.
