The Nationwide Children's Hospital/Ohio State University Pediatric Residency Program

As one of the five largest pediatric hospitals in the nation, Nationwide Children's Hospital logs more than 700,000 patient visits every year from all 50 states and 22 nations worldwide. It has one of the country's largest pediatric ambulatory networks, and operates the second busiest Emergency Department in the country. It is also one of the nation's top ten freestanding children's hospitals in National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding.

The pediatric faculty members at Nationwide Children's Hospital are strongly committed to the education of our resident physicians. Faculty members are committed to resident education and a variety of academic pursuits. Residents also benefit from the large number of community pediatricians who are part of our faculty and are an integral part of our teaching mission.

Preparing residents to become knowledgeable, caring and effective pediatricians is not just a goal, it's something we make happen each and every year at Children's Hospital, home to The Ohio State University's Pediatric Residency Training Program. Our unique mix of patient care opportunities and educational activities help prepare our residents to pursue any type of pediatric career that they desire.  

Our residency program is committed to providing the trainee with the comprehensive knowledge base and skills required of pediatricians. This commitment has helped us become one of America's finest health care facilities for children.

Upon successful completion of the program, the resident has met the training requirements for general pediatrics certification by the American Board of Pediatrics. We hope you take the time to review our information online. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. We look forward to meeting with you.
