Quotes from our Residents

“Cincinnati Children's is a great place to be a pediatric resident! I knew I wanted to learn how to take care of kids at a large center, which offers the full variety of patients - from healthy newborns to the most complex teens. My favorite part is easily the people. My co-residents have become like family, helping make the best moments out of some of the most stressful experiences. Our attendings, residency leadership and administration are never ending fountains of knowledge, while also being fun and supportive. Our patients and families always impress me with their resilience; I'm so grateful to be a small part in their story. Residents are actively involved in research, quality improvement, global health, medical education, and countless other areas outside of clinical experiences, rounding out our training. Cincinnati is also a great place to live and play outside of work! I wouldn't change my decision to choose Cincinnati Children's for my residency training for anything!” Amanda Wanous, MD - Categorical Resident Class of 2021


“I had the fortunate opportunity to rotate at Cincinnati Children’s as a medical student and was able to experience the incredibly warm, nurturing culture of the program firsthand before starting the application process. While I kept an open mind during application season and interviewed at other top tier programs, the choice to rank Cincinnati first was an easy one. The mentorship, friendship, and opportunity for personal development as a resident in this program are unrivaled. Since starting residency, my appreciation for the wonderful faculty, staff, and my co-residents has only grown. Residency has been both challenging and rewarding, and I could not be surrounded by a stronger support system here.” Katelyn Gordon, MD - Categorical Resident Class of 2022


"As an International Medical Graduate, I chose Cincinnati Children’s because of the people. Everyone I met and talked to functioned as a team and clearly loved coming into work. I knew I would get the best medical training I possibly could; the program offered great academics and clinical training with high patient volume and diverse pathology. However, what made the difference to me was that the program prioritized global and individual growth. It offered great Global Health opportunities, humanities meetings, great mentorships and diversity, all things that were very important for me. It has been a great first year, with so much learning. Coming from afar, I have found so much support in my co-residents (now close friends) as well as the teams I have worked with.” - Daniela Bullard-Elias, MD - Categorical Pediatrics Resident
