Pediatric Education

At Golisano Children’s Hospital at Strong we believe that preparing tomorrow’s health care leaders is one of our fundamental responsibilities.

At Golisano Children’s Hospital at Strong and through the University of Rochester’s Department of Pediatrics, our trainees have the opportunity to learn from the best in a rigorous program designed to provide a wealth of pediatric experiences and the intellectual depth and stimulation that are the building blocks for any pediatric career.

We teach and help develop values that are central to being a physician:

  • Availability
  • Clinical decision making
  • Critical self-appraisal
  • Critical thinking
  • Continual self-growth
  • Scientific rigour
  • Sensitivity
  • Thoroughness

The environment within Golisano Children’s Hospital also fosters skills specific to physicians caring for children: the true enjoyment of working with infants, children, adolescents, and young adults; the development of communication skills with children and their families; an appreciation of the development of children; knowledge of childhood diseases and the pathophysiologic basis for those diseases; and an emphasis on health promotion and disease prevention.
