Educating Future Leaders
As a field leader in pediatric care, Children’s Health℠ physicians embrace the responsibility and privilege of training the next generation of doctors. We proudly serve as the primary pediatric teaching location for the University of Texas Southwestern and are dedicated to shaping medical school graduates into innovative, compassionate pediatricians through our pediatric residency program.
Through hands-on training, residents practice alongside seasoned physicians, and master the latest developments in the diagnosis and treatment of childhood disorders. Many will go on to practice here, while others will practice across the state, and nation, as respected experts in the care of children.
Children’s Health provides a learning bed for students at all stages with an interest in medical careers, from child life workshops for students interested in exploring opportunities in this career field, to pediatric cardiology fellowships providing highly specialized physician training in heart care for kids. Student internships are available in music therapy. And the child life program, one of the oldest in Texas, provides students with practicum, internship and fellowship opportunities.
