Pediatric Residency

21-22 Intern Class

The Pediatric and Med-Peds interns participated in a community engagement project during orientation this past June (2021). They packed 1,000 care packages for Rush programs and partners in the West Side of Chicago!

The pediatric residency program at Rush University offers outstanding training in pediatrics, preparing graduates to successfully practice in primary care, begin a hospitalist career or obtain a competitive fellowship. You’ll build a strong clinical and research foundation in a friendly and collegial, yet academically challenging environment. Our mid-sized program is small enough that our residents transition quickly to feeling part of the Rush family.
