The Integrated Pediatric Residency Training Program of the Wright State University School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. Inpatient educational experiences take place at Dayton Children's Hospital. Residents' ambulatory experiences are enhanced by outpatient rotations that occur in a setting specifically focused on delivering outpatient care to healthy children as well as acutely and chronically ill children.
The unique nature of the integrated program allows residents to work at Dayton Children's and the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base Medical Center Pediatric Clinic. These geographically close (about four miles apart), but different, settings have much to offer residents. They afford residents experience with a wide variety of patients from different ethnic, socioeconomic and geographic settings. Each facility is staffed by a faculty of pediatric generalists and subspecialists recruited for their commitment to education. Both sites also provide pediatric training to medical students from Boonshoft School of Medicine and other primary care residency programs in the area.
Over the past 30 years, Dayton Children’s, the United States Air Force and Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine have collaborated to offer the country’s only civilian/military integrated pediatric residency program. At the end of the three-year curriculum, our graduates are well prepared for careers in primary care or the initiation of subspecialty fellowship training. Currently 48 residents are being trained in the program and will go on to serve our local community as well as communities around the world.
