St. Louis Children's Hospital has many options available for residents to personalize their training throughout residency. While the majority of our residents do not participate in a pathway, first year residents are able to apply for the following pathways: Child Advocacy, Global Health, and Teaching. Participation in these pathways provides residents dedicated time to focus their elective rotations on the above areas of interest. In addition, each pathway allows residents to complete a scholarly project with faculty mentors in their respective field.
There are opportunities for residents not in these pathways to gain experience in these fields. Examples include participating in the Advocacy Committee, international education experiences and medical education training.
