Housestaff Details

There are 30 pediatric residents and two chief residents this year. Pediatric housestaff interact closely with residents from the Departments of Family Medicine, Emergency Medicine, and Obstetrics and Gynecology. In addition to caring for general pediatric patients, pediatric housestaff coordinate the care of pediatric surgical patients with the subspecialty surgical services. Pediatrics has primary responsibility for pre-op and post-op management of their surgical patients. Medical students from the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA commonly receive a significant part of their pediatric training at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. Fourth year students from other medical schools also frequent the Harbor-UCLA clinical services. Teaching of medical students is a shared responsibility of full-time faculty, volunteer clinical faculty, housestaff, and subspecialty fellows in the Department of Pediatrics.
