Pediatric Residency Explained 

As a pediatric teaching hospital, our practice includes doctors who have finished medical school and are now in a three-year training program (called "residency") to become pediatricians. Nemours pediatricians (called "attending pediatricians") oversee the residents' work. Your child may have a resident who'll be their primary care provider (PCP). We expect that, over the course of three years, you'll form good relationships with your resident and attending pediatrician. When your resident PCP graduates, we'll assign a new resident PCP on the same day of the week so that you can continue your relationship with your attending pediatrician. And you can always request a specific PCP if you'd like.

Note: Residents are not listed here, but you can still call to make appointments with them.
