We are delighted that you are considering the integrated pediatric residency of Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base for your postgraduate training. With its long commitment to excellence in primary care, we believe that you will find our program well positioned to provide you with a diverse and comprehensive experience in both inpatient and outpatient pediatrics. By combining the outstanding facilities of Dayton Children's Hospital with the large outpatient facilities and medical center of the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, you are assured a broad and rich experience upon which to build your career. Whether your future plans include primary care practice, academic medicine, or additional subspecialty training after residency, the Wright State University/Wright-Patterson Air Force Base program provides the proper balance and exposure to the field of pediatrics to meet your career goals.

Our faculty consists of a team of devoted and talented teachers representing all of the major subspecialty fields and general pediatrics. Our community-based, voluntary faculty offer many residents a "real life" experience in the practice of pediatrics within the office setting. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges’ Benchmark Performance Measures, the Boonshoft School of Medicine ranks in the 99th percentile for the number of our graduates who practice in primary care. We believe that you will agree that both our commitment to teaching and our belief that quality care for children is firmly rooted in quality primary care are evident throughout your training.
