Our residents provide front-line care to over a half-million patients annually at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and the Grady Health System. Our diverse clinical sites give residents experience with pediatric conditions both common and complex, in patients representing a range of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.

We foster an environment of care and compassion for patients, families, and colleagues. Our curricular structure focuses on development of a whole person as well as physician during training.
Our 300+ faculty members are committed to resident education in all forms, including bedside teaching, didactics, and research mentorship.

We hope you find this site informative and welcome any questions you might have about our program. Thank you for your interest and congratulations on selecting pediatrics as a career choice!
