Program Description

The San Antonio Uniformed Services Health Education Consortium Pediatric Residency Program provides outstanding opportunities for our residents. We are committed to training competent and compassionate, mission ready pediatricians through increasing levels of autonomy. We require and encourage a supportive environment that pushes residents to their full potential. Our graduates leave ready to practice with confident independence, whether stationed at a remote clinic, a large medical center, or deployed in support of military operations.

Our residents work with faculty to provide pediatric health care to approximately 35,000 beneficiaries in our San Antonio market. Residents can expect to learn, practice, and be supervised in outpatient general and specialty clinics; inpatient wards and pediatric intensive care units; newborn nurseries; and neonatal intensive care units. At Brooke Army Medical Center and Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center, residents engage with required rotations through general pediatrics in two Patient Centered Medical Homes; day and night rotations on our inpatient ward; day and night rotations in our newborn nursery; day and night rotations in our NICU and PICU; and day rotations through adolescent medicine clinics, developmental-behavioral pediatrics clinics, pediatric cardiology clinics, and child advocacy clinics. Residents can pursue electives in a wide variety of other inpatient and outpatient pediatric subspecialties.

Our military faculty represent pediatric subspecialties such as adolescent and young adult medicine, cardiology, child abuse pediatrics, critical care medicine, developmental-behavioral pediatrics, emergency medicine, endocrinology, gastroenterology, genetics and metabolic disorders, hematology/oncology, infectious diseases, neonatology, neurology, nutrition, and pulmonology. We partner with pediatric-focused surgeons and specialties in our facility to include pediatric allergy/immunology, dentistry, ophthalmology, orthopedic surgery, otolaryngology, radiology, sleep medicine, surgery, and urology.

Residents also rotate at:

  • University Hospital in San Antonio for inpatient ward and NICU rotations, with a large, diverse urban population
  • Christus Children’s Hospital for Emergency Medicine and PICU care at a children’s hospital
  • Methodist Children’s Hospital for pediatric anesthesia and procedure exposure
  • Randolph Air Force Base community pediatrics clinic for an experience at a busy, smaller patient-centered medical home
  • Fort Cavazos for a garrison capstone experience as a pediatric hospitalist at a community hospital
