Welcome from the Chief Residents!
Thank you for your interest in Loma Linda Pediatrics! We hope you find this website useful in your search for the right pediatric residency. Applicants often ask what makes Loma Linda unique. Here are a few things from a chief resident’s perspective.
The People – From the program directors and attending physicians to the nurses, respiratory therapists, and case managers, Loma Linda makes you feel like you’re family. Our faculty and staff are very approachable and will support you throughout your stay.
The Education – Attendings at Loma Linda will make education a top priority. Bedside teaching is the norm here, but our curriculum has plenty of interactive conferences that will help you with your clinical knowledgebase and board prep.
The Residents – They have great camaraderie with each other and are the greatest people to work with. Residents frequently hang out together after work going to restaurants, night markets, playing in intramural sports, and more. The possibilities are endless!
The Patients – Our patients are one of the best teachers. You will be exposed to a variety of patients at Loma Linda since we are a tertiary-care children’s hospital. Also, getting to know the patients you care for will enhance your clinical skills and bedside manner.
There is more to Loma Linda than what we can put in this letter. Please explore this website and see what Loma Linda is really about. Feel free to contact the chief residents office if you have more questions. Good luck in your journey to find the perfect match, and we hope that you choose us to reach your goal to becoming an awesome pediatrician!
