Chair's Welcome

Dr. Rita RyanDear Future Applicant,

We are pleased that you have elected to consider our pediatric program to further your training. As you visit our Children's Hospital, you will find a comprehensive well-designed busy facility that was obviously created with children in mind. To match this facility, you will find a seasoned faculty composed of enthusiastic, dedicated pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists. All of the pediatric subspecialty disciplines are represented and you will find that the faculty are eager to teach as well as provide quality care to their patients.

The program strives to offer the house staff the basic general knowledge and skills to adequately prepare the graduate for further fellowship training or to enter the practice of general pediatrics. Our website provides general overview of the training program. We extend to you a cordial invitation to meet our faculty and current house staff.

Sincerely yours,
Dr. Rita Ryan
Rita M. Ryan, MD
Chair, Department of Pediatrics
