Pediatric Residency

Thank you for your interest in the Pediatric Residency Program at Cooper University Health Care. The field of pediatrics is an exciting and rewarding one. There is great joy in working with children and their families.

With an expansion of services, Cooper has become stronger in its role as the academic medical center of South Jersey. The Children’s Regional Hospital at Cooper accredited Pediatric Residency Program will provide you with the knowledge and clinical experience necessary to become a successful pediatrician. Our full-time faculty is energetic, enthusiastic, and committed to teaching. We have earned an excellent reputation by providing quality medical care in a family-centered environment. We have worked equally hard within our medical education program to create a friendly atmosphere that is conducive to learning. 

Our teaching program in pediatrics has a number of strengths including the close interaction between residents and faculty, a diverse patient population and a strong didactic curriculum.  The close relationship between faculty and residents helps to foster autonomy in decision-making.  Our collaborative approach to program change has resulted in a number of resident initiatives to improve the program.  The result is a program that focuses on resident-directed education and lifelong learning and produces pediatricians that are well-equipped to enter inpatient or outpatient practice or fellowship.  The program uses several different interactive conferences and independent learning assignments to accomplish this. 

We invite you to visit and learn more about our program.

Please call our Medical Education Office at 856.757.7904 if you have any questions.
