Pediatric Residency Program
Florida Hospital for Children is proud to introduce our new Pediatric Residency Program. Led by Stacy A. McConkey, MD, FAAP, the program is designed to promote development of tomorrow's physicians using the adult learning model for both general and subspecialty trained pediatricians. In addition to this, program participants will receive training consistent with the Disney model followed by all Florida Hospital for Children employees, making them top in their fields in all core competencies, including patient care, satisfaction, quality and safety.
Residents will be caring for patients alongside a fully functional team that includes faculty physicians, medical students, nurses, physician extenders and the the extensive support team at Florida Hospital for Children. This allows residents to focus on the educational aspect of patient care without the stress of being completely responsible for daily functionality. The educational curriculum covers a wide variety of conferences, from case based discussions, lectures and hands on training in simulation for procedures and patient care, to morning report style conferences with faculty involvement. The rotation schedule allots six rotations over three years to the resident's choice, making it easy to create an individualized curriculum for attaining training goals in general pediatrics or a subspecialty.
