Pediatrics Residency


The Pediatrics Residency at the University of Iowa is a three-year, ACGME-accredited program that offers exposure to an array of patients and learning situations. Residents have access to high-powered faculty members, comprehensive experience in all subspecialties and a state-of-the-art clinical facility that was ranked nationally in eight Pediatric specialties.

The new University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital that opened in early 2017 will build upon that tradition. UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital is Iowa’s only comprehensive children’s hospital and academic medical center.

I wanted to stay in the Midwest and train at a program with a history of strong job and fellowship placement.  The exceptional family-friendliness and camaraderie of current residents made Iowa an easy choice.
