Welcome to the Department of Pediatric Residency

Brenner Children’s Hospital at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center is dedicated to excellence in patient care, education, quality improvement, research and advocacy focused on the special needs of children and their families.

Faculty members within the Department of Pediatrics are actively engaged in clinical care, education, quality improvement, research, and advocacy to positively impact the care of children today and for generations to come. Residents are encouraged to pursue their passions while working with mentors to enhance their clinical skills and gaining invaluable experience. Over the years, multiple residents have obtained AAP CATCH grants, presented locally and nationally, and published in esteemed journals with the mentoring and encouragement of our faculty.

Our pediatric residency program is an important focus for our Department. We strive to provide a collaborative atmosphere where each individual is a learner as well as a teacher.  We foster close mentoring relationships and prepare residents for all aspects of a professional career in pediatrics, no matter where their path takes them. Our residents have pursued clinical practice around the country and the world as well as fellowship positions at the top medical institutions.  

Whether destined for general or subspecialty practice with a passion for education, advocacy, quality improvement or research, Brenner Children's Hospital is a place large enough to examine the important questions—and small enough to empower you to search for answers.

We invite you to explore our training program and this exceptional place where we are all learners.
