WELCOME TO THE BROWN PEDIATRICS RESIDENCY PROGRAM AT HASBRO CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL
welcome from our program director
Welcome to the Pediatric Residency Program at Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University / Hasbro Children’s Hospital! Thank you for your interest in our program.
Our mission at Brown is to provide a world-class education for our residents in an environment which fosters self-directed learning, meaningful mentorship and collaboration. We are passionate about the care of children, and our residents have the opportunity to learn, teach and provide state-of-the-art care in multiple clinical settings with a diverse patient population.
Just as each patient is unique, so is each trainee. We strive to create a learning environment that is dynamic and responds to the individual needs of each resident while remaining anchored to our core values of advocacy, inquiry, diversity and innovation. The residents who choose to train with us graduate with a mastery of clinical skills, but also a deep understanding of how social responsibility, community engagement, research and activism are all powerful tools to help further children’s health.
