Program Description

The University of Wisconsin Pediatrics Residency Program supports both the traditional, three-year residency training program, as well as the research pathways developed by the American Board of Pediatrics. We embrace the unique training of the physician-scientist with the NIH-supported MD-PhD program, led by director Anna Huttenlocher, MD. Several training programs at both resident and fellow level have T32 training grants, allowing for opportunities in primary care and health services research that our residents pursue after their clinical training.
