Thank you for your interest in our program. The field of pediatrics is an exciting and rewarding one. There is great joy in working with children and their families.
Cooper University Hospital has been doing very well over the past few years. With new leadership and expansion of services, Cooper has become stronger in its role as the academic medical center of South Jersey.
The Children’s Regional Hospital at Cooper University Hospital has an accredited pediatric residency program that will provide you with the knowledge and clinical experience necessary to become a successful pediatrician. Our full-time faculty is energetic, enthusiastic and committed to teaching. We have earned an excellent reputation by providing quality medical care in a family-centered environment. We have worked equally hard within our medical education program to create a friendly atmosphere that is conducive to learning.
Our teaching program in pediatrics has undergone a number of changes over the past several years. Although some of these changes have been in response to duty hours restrictions, including the addition of night float to protect elective time, most have been generated by feedback received from residents and graduates. The result is a program that focuses on resident-directed education and lifelong learning. The program uses several different interactive conferences to accomplish this. You will find the details of these conferences on the pages that follow.
We have an integrated osteopathic and allopathic residency program that enables osteopathic physicians enrolled in it to pursue dual certification by the American Board of Osteopathic Pediatricians and the American Board of Pediatrics. It is a popular and competitive program.
We invite you to visit and learn more about our program.
