Chief Residents

The key educational, clinical and administrative leaders for the housestaff are the Chief Residents. Each year three members of the graduating class are selected and remain for an additional year to fulfill this vital role. They are appointed to the faculty as Clinical Instructors of General Pediatrics in order to serve at an attending level in their clinical duties. Their clinical service includes time as General Pediatrics Inpatient Attending on the Blue Team at LPCH, and at SCVMC, General Pediatrics Clinic Attending, and Teaching Attending. They share responsibilities for educational initiatives and administrative issues throughout their year of service. Interacting with faculty, housestaff, and hospital administration, the Chief Residents act as liaisons and leaders.


Fellowships

Approximately 60-65% of our residents enter fellowships, both here at Stanford and at other prestigious programs across the country. Current fellowship offerings at LPCH include Adolescent Medicine, Allergy/Immunology, Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics, Cardiology, Critical Care, Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, General Pediatrics, Genetics, Hematology-Oncology, Hospital Medicine, Infectious Diseases, Neonatology, Nephrology, Pulmonology, and Rheumatology. Inquiries regarding the scope of these programs should be made directly to the Stanford Pediatrics Fellowship Directors and Division Chiefs. Our program assists residents in obtaining their top fellowship choices.


Careers

Approximately 35- 40% of our graduates pursue general pediatrics careers with approximately 15% working as pediatric hospitalists and 20% working in primary care pediatrics groups. We encourage residents to develop their leadership potential through opportunities in quality improvement, performance improvement, medical education, etc. Former graduates have become leaders in medical education, clinical informatics, clinical resource managment, hospital committees and research.
