Meet the Residents

Welcome to the Pediatric Residency Program of the Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s Hospital. We are honored and excited to serve as chief residents for this year, and hope that our dedication to resident wellness, education, and advocacy shine through. We are proud to be a part of Mount Sinai’s tradition of excellence. Our program features a strong focus on advocacy and the social determinants of health, a robust global health track, and diverse basic, translational and clinical research opportunities.

As part of our program, you will have the opportunity to train with world-renowned specialists. In addition, you will develop longitudinal experience through both bread-and-butter pediatrics as well as complex patients. We are also unique in our access to a one-of-a-kind Pediatric Visiting Doctors  and Complex Care Clinic program. Please take your time to explore our website, read about our residents’ experiences, and reach out to us anytime with questions.
