The Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) Community Pediatric Residency Program is uniquely designed to keep pace with a changing medical climate. In addition to traditional hospital-based learning, a significant portion of the resident's training will be community-focused and community-based. We strongly believe these community-learning experiences are vital in training highly qualified pediatricians to deliver healthcare to our nation's children.
As medical technology advances, healthcare is shifting away from inpatient and tertiary care settings towards ambulatory and primary care. It is our conviction that the Community Pediatric Residency Program at Morehouse School of Medicine will serve as a training model for the development of a complete and well-rounded pediatrician who is well-qualified to face the challenges of healthcare delivery in the new millennium.
It is expected that the graduates of the Community Pediatric Residency Program at MSM will be motivated to serve the medically underserved pediatric populations. Due to the innovative nature of the training program, graduates will also feel equally adept in choosing a career in public health, academia or medical practice in urban and rural medically underserved communities.
