Welcome to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital Pediatrics Residency Program.

We are confident you can find what you're looking for here: broad clinical exposure to all aspects of primary and tertiary care pediatrics, outstanding evidence-based curriculums, extensive teaching and mentorship, unparalleled research opportunities, and passionate, engaged colleagues. We’re lucky to have all of this in a dynamic, diverse, and safe city.

We prioritize a few things in our program:

  • Individualized rotation scheduling focused on career exploration or planning
  • Collaborative, approachable residents, fellows, and faculty members
  • Innovative didactics and broad-based curricular initiatives
  • Personalized mentorship and targeted feedback

Our program can give you great clinical experiences with lots of flexibility in scheduling, and close relationships with your colleagues and supervisors. We really are a community here.

Check out our new, state-of-the-art Stead Family Children’s Hospital! It opened early 2017, and with it we grew the size of our faculty, increased our clinical volume, improved access to our resources, and engaged the community and the state. It’s an exciting time to be at Iowa.

About half of our graduates go on to primary care pediatrics, and about half match into choice fellowships across the country. Check out some of the resident profiles to meet the people you'll get to work with.

We encourage you to review our website to get to know the people and opportunities that make our program great. Reach out to our education team, our chief residents, and anyone you see here to find out why they joined our team. We think you’ll find your place here too.
