Pediatric Residency

Training Future Leaders in Pediatric Medicine

The Pediatric Residency program at Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin trains physicians who graduate well-prepared to provide health care in all settings, from primary care pediatrics to highly subspecialized care. The program features an individualized curriculum tailored to the resident’s educational and career goals and provides comprehensive exposure to both general pediatrics and subspecialty medicine.

Residents rotate primarily at Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas, which provides highly specialized care to the children of Central Texas.
