Acute and emergent care of infants, children and adolescents in the ED based at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in Hartford provides this pediatric experience.
Additional training in the regular health care for children and adolescents, evaluating and treating sick children is the purpose of this community ambulatory pediatric rotation. The rotation is based at a federally qualified health clinic in the south end of Hartford (Community Health, Inc.).
The third year of training allows for a significant amount of time for you to design your additional training. This is the time to get out into other parts of the community, country, or the world!
