The advocacy curriculum has transitioned to a longitudinal experience throughout residency. Residents have the opportunity to experience local resources available to our patients during their time spent on subspecialty rotation and elective time.

The Pediatric Residency Simulation Program is designed to complement your clinical and didactic education activities. The overall goal, by the end of residency, is for you to be prepared to provide independent resuscitation, stabilization and triage of acutely/critically ill pediatric and neonatal patients.

Throughout their three years of residency, each categorical resident follows a panel of patients ages birth to 21 years at the UNC Children's Primary Care Clinic located on Franklin Street.



We offer a wide variety of recurring conferences as part of our residents’ education. Our goals for these conferences include enhancing residents’ clinical decision-making and knowledge, helping residents prepare for the boards, supporting ongoing incorporation of EBM principles into medical practice, providing a venue to discuss ethical dilemmas encountered during patient care, and giving residents opportunities for their own scholarly presentation.



To foster scholarship within the UNC Pediatrics Residency Program, each resident will be required to complete a Scholarly Project during their residency. The purpose of this requirement is to equip residents with the skills necessary to research a specific topic, to organize the latest data on this subject and to present this information to ones colleagues.
