Pediatrics

Overlook Family Medicine residents gain inpatient experience in general pediatrics by spending two months of the first year at Goryeb Children's Center at Overlook Medical Center. During inpatient rotations, residents work with pediatric attendings and other residents. Additionally, in the first year, residents spend one month in the Pediatric Emergency Department and Morristown Medical Center rotating in the nursery under the supervision of the pediatric residency faculty.

Second-year residents undertake one month of ambulatory pediatric training, including experience in routine well child care and time with various pediatric subspecialists in the outpatient setting.

Family medicine residents have ongoing experience, in all three years, caring for children and adolescents in the family medicine office and family medicine patients in the hospital. Residents also attend several child-specific conferences, including a monthly case conference focused on the 1st Year of Life, a series of child development conferences and a block of child psychiatry conferences, among others.
