Welcome to the next chapter in your health care career
The future of pediatric health care depends on dedicated and passionate trainees like you receiving the best education and training driven by scientific discovery and evidence-based medicine. If that sounds like your ideal learning environment, you’ve come to the right place.
Our faculty provide the highest quality, comprehensive, well-organized and innovative curriculum for our students, residents, fellows and other trainees. We promote self-directed learning as the basis for lifelong continuing education. The experience is both coordinated, so every trainee receives robust training in all aspects of pediatrics, and individualized so we can focus on the needs and career goals of each specific trainee.
The Department of Pediatrics coordinates medical student education in the pre-clinical and clinical years of medical school, offering fantastic inpatient and outpatient learning experiences. The Department also sponsors a summer science program for college students, designed to offer sophomore through senior-level students interested in medical careers the opportunity to work in a research setting for 10 weeks during the summer.
The faculty and staff of the Department provide a variety of continuing education offerings for Arkansas health professionals including Grand Rounds, Fellows’ Core Curriculum, Fellows’ Research Day, monthly research conferences, journal clubs and numerous pediatric seminars. Endowed Lectureships help bring in renowned educators and researchers from around the world each month to Arkansas Children’s to teach.
