Pediatrics Residency Graduates

Our Goal: 100% Board Pass Rate

Our graduates have done quite well on the American Board of Pediatrics Certifying Examination. Two years ago, we started an initiative to bring our pass rate to 100%—integrating PREP questions in Morning Report and all subspecialty rotations, Faculty Board Review monthly, Intensive Board Review with Chief Residents 3 days a week from January through June, and Intensive Individualized Study Plans for at-risk residents.

We have already seen results from our interventions. On the 2016 and 2017 exams, our pass rate for first time takers was 90%.

Our Grads Successfully Obtain Fellowships of Their Choice

About half of our graduates go on to fellowship training in a pediatric subspecialty, and half go into general pediatrics practice, although this varies year-to-year.

In the last 15 years, our graduates have entered fellowships at institutions such as Boston University, Children’s Hospital Boston, Children's Hospital Philadelphia, Cincinnati Children's Hospital, Duke University, Johns Hopkins, MGH,  Pittsburgh, UC San Diego, University of North Carolina,  Vanderbilt, and Yale, in subspecialties from Alternative and Complementary Medicine to Critical Care, from Neonatology to Sports Medicine, from Emergency Medicine to Hematology/Oncology.
