Hospital Infantil Dr. Robert Reid Cabral / Centro de Obstetricia y Ginecologia

Two hospitals are available in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

The Hospital Infantil Dr. Robert Reid Cabral is the country’s primary children’s hospital. With over 350 beds, almost all pediatric specialties are available. The primary emphasis of the rotation will be in the infectious diseases branch, where tropical infections such as cholera, leptospirosis, dengue, and chikungunya are commonly seen.

Meanwhile, at the Centro de Obstetricia y Ginecologia, one-on-one teaching in the NICU and hospitalist services is available for visiting residents. Visiting SLCH residents will work side-by-side with local medical students and pediatric residents, and will have the opportunity to do some teaching as well.
