Clinical Program

We are a fully accredited program that accepts 4 residents per year, all categorical. The program is 5 years in length with 4-1/2 years spent at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and 6 months spent at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and Shriners Hospital for Children.

Most of the clinical rotations take place at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center which gives residents the advantage of being able to attend all conferences. The hospital provides ample on-call facilities, excellent ancillary services including around the clock intravenous, phlebotomy and blood gas teams, EKG services, radiology technicians, and patient transport services. In addition to a salaried position, residents receive several added benefits including a monthly food allowance and free parking.
