Metropolitan Hospital Center

Metropolitan Hospital Center Pediatrics residency is more than its 50 years history of teaching & discovery, more than the wisdom and passion of our faculty. Metropolitan Hospital Center is a place for you to become a skilled and knowledgeable clinician, a life long advocate for children in your community, and whose goal is to promote the health and well being of the children of our region and around the world.

Our Program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and our program strictly observes both New York State Code 405 regulations and the Resident Review Committee (RRC) regulations regarding resident work hours and supervision.

Philosophy: The philosophy of the pediatric residency program at Metropolitan Hospital Center is to teach pediatric medicine by providing a broad-based exposure to the field through optimal balance between general pediatrics, critical care and the pediatric subspecialties.

We are committed to integrating service and education by offering:

  • Comprehensive inpatient and outpatient sites of care with the most multi cultural and diverse population in the country
  • Diverse opportunities for child advocacy

Mission: The mission of our training program is to educate physicians who will be prepared at the end of their training to become leaders in the filed of pediatrics as healers, teachers, researchers and advocates.

We do this by stimulating and developing:

  • Excellence and responsibility in patient care
  • Critical thinking and questioning
  • Technical competence
  • Sound medical judgment and professional integrity
  • Commitment to self directed and life long learning

Goal: The goal of our residency program is to train and prepare residents to be competent general pediatricians and be able to provide comprehensive and coordinated care of high quality to a broad range of pediatric patients. The residents are also trained in all fields of subspecialty pediatrics to enable them to participate as team members in the care of patients with chronic and complex disorders.

Residents are given abundant opportunities to function with other members of the health care team in both inpatient and ambulatory settings to become competent as leaders in the organization of management of patient care.
