Program Introduction

The Lewis M. Fraad Department of Pediatrics, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York City Health and Hospitals/Jacobi is committed to training exceptional pediatricians. The entire program has been designed to provide residents with a comprehensive educational experience and to prepare them for careers in pediatrics. The residency also provides an excellent foundation for future training in pediatric subspecialties, public health, and child advocacy.

The residency strives to develop the full potential of each resident. To this end, each house officer chooses a faculty advisor who provides support and counsel during the three years of training. The program also provides regular retreats for house staff in order to allow group time for reflecting, socializing, and relaxing away from the hospital environment. The residency strives to develop the full potential of each resident.
