About the Program
Welcome to the Department of Pediatrics at McGovern Medical School! Please feel free to browse this website as your preview to our residency program. You will find useful information about our program, our hospitals, and the city of Houston.
However, we only have room on these pages to provide a brief introduction to our greatest strength – our people.
At all levels of our program, there is a commitment to education and community that permeates all we do. Residency represents three to four very important years of your life during which you receive vital education for your career, establish foundations for your future, and most importantly, form relationships for life.
If you have any questions or are interested in scheduling a visit with our program, feel free to contact us and we will be happy to meet you!
Pediatric Residency Program Director
