For Health Professionals

Healthcare Education

As a major pediatric teaching hospital, we educate men and women who will be the leading physicians and researchers of the future. Our pediatric medical education program encompasses residency training and education of medical students from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. Fellowships and other training programs offer advanced training in many pediatric disciplines.

Nursing education also plays a central role at the Hospital. Through education initiatives and training programs, the Department of Nursing keeps its staff informed on the latest thinking and up-to-date on innovative new procedures.

The Hospital presents continuing medical education courses for physicians through Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. The goal is to provide practicing physicians with opportunities to review and keep abreast of the latest developments in their specific fields.

Continuing education opportunities are also presented to other healthcare professionals to provide them with advanced training and new approaches to patient care.
