Pediatric Residency Program

Welcome!  Thank you for your interest in the Crozer Pediatric Residency Program. Our unique combination of a community hospital core program, paired with tertiary care academic experiences through our educational partnership with the premier Nemours/Alfred I duPont Hospital for Children, offers an exceedingly well rounded pediatric education. 

Our residents are well versed in the social determinants of health, and serving a vulnerable population through the approach of providing trauma-informed care. They are proud community partners and advocates, leveraging their relationships, knowledge and skills in support of children and families in our Chester, PA community and beyond.

Our program is strongly rooted in academics, with opportunities for clinical, quality, and educational scholarship and participation in local, regional, and national meetings. Crozer-Chester Medical Center is notably a Regional Medical Campus for Drexel University College of Medicine (DUCOM), with a cohort of DUCOM medical students spending their entire 3rd year imbedded in learning at the Crozer Campus.

We pride ourselves in having a warm, collegial atmosphere amongst learners and faculty, and this close relationship fosters active and ongoing mentorship which has aided in our near perfect fellowship placement statistics and highly sought after employment opportunities for our graduates. Importantly though, our residents are not only successful professionally, but with a strong foundation in wellness and respect for a healthy work-life balance, we strive to support you personally as well.  

We invite you to explore our website, learn about our faculty and residents, and consider why the Crozer Pediatrics Residency Program could be the first step on your pathway to success!
