We at Stanford pediatrics love children and care deeply about supporting residents who have children. We do this through a combination of benefits, mentorship and activities that support and involve children and families.
- We offer top-notch healthcare benefits in the Stanford network for residents, their spouses and children free of charge (no deductible)
- We offer paid parental leave per GME policies
- We offer a 4-week new parenting elective for residents who have newborns to learn from home about newborn care and health
- Stanford has a number of affiliated child care centers available through the WorkLife office
- All of our Stanford-affiliated housing options welcome residents with children
- Located in the Silicon Valley, we have had success helping residents’ partners find jobs in tech, health care, teaching, and other fields
- As a residency, we host social events that include residents’ children
