Pediatrics Residency and Fellowship Programs
Welcome to the Vermont Children’s Hospital at Fletcher Allen in Burlington, Vermont — a hospital within a hospital where you’ll find an exceptional, small academic program with a large reputation.
Our Pediatrics Residency Programs
While we’re known nationally for advancing the field, our clinical and teaching excellence, and our highly skilled and committed faculty, we also remain deeply rooted in our local community through a strong network of valued partnerships. We offer close-knit pediatrics residency and fellowship programs that provide some of the best teaching and mentoring in the country, and consistently produce expertly trained physicians.
A Unique Training Environment
Accredited by the National Association of Children’s Hospitals and Related Institutions (NACHRI), the Vermont Children’s Hospital serves a largely rural region, which informs the way we practice medicine. While the surrounding area is rural, our location in Burlington adds the flavor of a larger city. This unique blend of city and country provides a pediatrics residency experience that can’t be matched at larger, urban children’s hospitals.
Comprehensive Care = Comprehensive Training
At Vermont Children’s Hospital, you’ll receive a well-rounded professional development experience with exposure to the following areas:
- Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
- Pediatric Intensive Care Unit
- A Center including multi-specialty clinics
- A procedural sedation program
- Pediatric telemedicine program
- Primary care clinics
In addition to training in a bustling tertiary care center, you’ll also practice in rural community hospitals and small town pediatric practices. And because our referring doctors and hospitals are an integrated part of our team, you’ll learn the skills needed to be both an excellent consultant and an excellent referring physician.
