Pediatric Residency Program

Wake Forest Baptist Health is home to Brenner Children's Hospital and a tight-knit community of health care professionals.

Brenner Children's Hospital is a state-of-the-art tertiary referral center where residents are exposed to a wide variety of pathology through patients from both the community and referring hospitals. Brenner’s is a “hospital within a hospital” model of a children’s hospital which allows us to have pediatric-specific care and ancillary staff, while keeping other hospital resources nearby.

We are a resident-driven program.  With fellows in only the neonatology and pediatric emergency medicine, our residents are on the front line with both specialists and generalists when caring for our patients.  Our program directors and faculty work together to train and mentor outstanding, well-rounded pediatricians ready for the next step in their career.
