Pediatric Residency Program Alumni

Life After Residency

The graduates of the University of Connecticut Pediatric Residency Program are very successful in achieving their career goals. The program is designed to provide training that prepares our graduates for virtually any of the possible career choices beyond their general training, and the program record verifies that this design has achieved its intent. Historically, one third to half of our graduates enter general practice including community practice and academic medicine. Our graduates secure highly sought after positions in New England and the New York Metro Area.

The majority of our graduates enter subspecialty fellowships and careers in all areas of pediatrics. Our match rate is above the national average. Our graduates have matched into some of the most prestigious fellowship programs, and the reports on their performance in these programs have been outstanding.
