PGY-1
The first year is designed to allow our residents to have a broad base of experience across the pediatric spectrum before deciding on a career path. There is a balance of in- and outpatient rotations with only one month of night team and some night shifts in the emergency department. First-year residents will not be assigned to night team in July or August, allowing them to become acclimated to a new setting and gain experience before caring for patients at night.
PGY-2

Second-year residents have more responsibility. They are team leaders on the floors. They cover deliveries while on their NICU rotation at SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital, taking every fourth-night call (on average).

They also gain additional critical care experience in the PICU with every fourth night call. During their neurology rotation, our second-year residents often function in a consultative role in addition to being a part of the neurology team. One month on night team rounds out the inpatient rotations for the second-year residents.

Outpatient rotations in the second year provide additional experience in our Danis Pediatrics Center (primary care/ambulatory) and emergency department. During the ambulatory rotation,  second-year residents also complete our Quality Improvement/Patient Safety curriculum. Three subspecialty electives during the second year allow residents to explore different career options in more depth.

PGY-3

Third-year residents also have an additional month of Level 3a NICU at SSM Health St. Mary's Hospital (every fourth-night call) to further hone their neonatal resuscitation and neonatal skills. They will have a third month of emergency medicine and two months on inpatient medicine serving as a floor supervisor. The floor supervisor is a unique role that allows our third-year residents to take on an advanced teaching role and become proficient at managing new admissions to the various floor teams, while at the same time having a greater level of independence in taking care of patients.

The last month of inpatient is chosen by the program director for each resident (with their input) based on educational needs and career plans for that resident. The rotations for this inpatient rotation might be the advanced newborn nursery, advanced NICU, advanced PICU, team leader, hospitalist team, floor supervisor, or night team.
