    Categorical Pediatrics Residency

    Our Categorical Pediatrics Training is the core of our training programs. Residents get a breadth of experience in various subspecialties and general pediatrics in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Learn more about the categorical rotation schedules.

    Preliminary Year

    At Cincinnati Children’s you have the opportunity to complete a preliminary year of training in pediatrics as you transition to other residencies which require this training. As an integral member of the residency team, the preliminary year resident develops fundamental clinical skills in general and subspecialty pediatrics. In addition to inpatient general pediatric rotations, this training is augmented by rotations in outpatient pediatrics, emergency medicine, newborn intensive care, and pediatric subspecialties such as cardiology, pulmonology, nephrology, and neurology. There is flexibility to add elective rotations as well as ongoing weekly outpatient clinic days that provide the resident with an opportunity to customize the preliminary year specifically to meet his / her future training needs.
