Curriculum

Pediatric Residency Curriculum

The academic year has a total of 13 blocks. Each block rotation is 4 weeks in duration; there is one block vacation in each year.

Continuity Clinic at the Primary Care Center at CHNJ is 1/2 day per week

All residents assigned to in-patient block rotations, including the intensive care units, have a total of seven overnight calls per 28-day rotation, averaging out to one call every four days.

The "night float" week begins on Sunday night at 7:30 p.m. (until 6:30 a.m. Monday) and ends on the following Friday morning. Saturday call is for a full 24 hours beginning at 8:00 am and ends on Sunday 8:00 am.

A regular component of the residency program is intern and senior resident retreats in which residents learn critical skills and participate in team-building exercises.

There are also social outings as well as dinners organized by the chief residents. Each December, the entire department comes together for the departmental holiday party, a fine catered dinner and evening of dancing at first-class facilities.
