A Message from the Pediatric Residency Program Director

Welcome to the Pediatric Residency Program at Jacobi Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine! We invite you to explore and learn more about the program. We are proud of the inclusive and educational experiences we have created for our residents to address their scholarly and professional interests as well as foster a culture of care for our patients, community, and ourselves.

Through continuity clinics and rotations at Jacobi and partnering institutions, residents are exposed to a vast array of primary care and subspecialty medicine while working with the amazing patients and families of New York City. In addition to our own medical center, our residents rotate through Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Children’s Hospital at Montefiore, interacting with faculty, fellows and highly specialized patient populations at these centers. Our faculty are invested in resident education and the continued pursuit to improve how we teach new generations of learners. Residents also make strides to improve children’s health through opportunities for research and advocacy.

It is our residents and faculty that make Jacobi feel like home! The close relationships between residents and faculty create a safe environment where respectful discussions and diversity are welcome. These relationships last well beyond the training years.

As a graduate of this program, I am excited to see its growth and the remarkable career paths my fellow alumni have taken. Along with the rest of the program leadership team, we aspire to train well-rounded pediatricians prepared for the next step in their careers.

We look forward to you joining our Jacobi work family as we care for our most resilient patient population - children.
