Pediatrics Residents
Best of Both Worlds: Tertiary Care + Strong Primary Care and Community Focus

"I chose Baystate because every person I met here seemed to be answering the question 'What is best for this patient?' through both their attitude and actions. Having finished my first year as a pediatrics resident, I'm proud to say that this still holds true!"—Eddie Zitnik DO, Pediatrics resident
Here's what residents are saying about our program!

Pediatrics Residency at UMass Chan Medical School - Baystate

We Train Great Pediatricians

The Baystate Children's Hospital's balanced 3-year ACGME-accredited Pediatrics Residency program, offered at UMass Chan-Baystate, ensures that you experience all aspects of pediatric care on both ambulatory and inpatient services. 

Our graduates are accomplished pediatricians who are:
  • Knowledgeable in medical problems and treatments
  • Skilled in procedures
  • Attuned to the needs of their patients
  • Able to navigate the complexities of the medical system

Plenty of Exposure to Common and Rare Diagnoses

We care for children from the urban areas of Holyoke and Springfield, the surrounding suburbs, and rural areas from northern Connecticut to southern Vermont, and eastern New York to Worcester, MA.

You will care for children of all ages—from diverse economic and cultural backgrounds—with illnesses from the commonplace to the rare and unusual. 

We are Committed to Life-long Learning

"We would love to hear from you!"

Faculty, residents, students, and staff—we all learn from each other.
  • Our residents are here to learn; our diverse pediatric faculty is dedicated to teaching. There are few fellows at Baystate—here the faculty works directly with you, including leading your didactics.
  • Hands-on clinical experience and structured educational times are integral to the residency experience.
  • Our residents solidify their knowledge while teaching medical students from Tufts, the University of Massachusetts, and other medical schools.
