Pediatric Residency Program
Practice management workshop – held in the Fall for graduating residents, this workshop features individual panel session of PCPs, fellows and hospitalists to offer career advice, as well as speakers to discuss financial planning, understanding contracts and salary negotiation.
Fellowship Mentoring Group – monthly sessions open to all residents with topics spanning from choosing a specialty, putting together a CV and personal statement, interviewing tips, creating a rank list and transitioning into fellowship.
Outpatient Mentoring Group
In 2021, the program leadership and leaders of Phoenix Children’s Primary Care and Phoenix Children’s Care Network developed a recurring mentoring group for residents pursuing a career immediately following residency. Utilizing recruiters, faculty and former residents working in the community, this group meets ~6 times per year to help residents identify all the important steps and considerations in preparation for a physician job search. Topics include development of a cover email, development of your curriculum vitae, where to look for jobs/job postings, practice types, interview skills best practice, evaluating total compensation package and a primer on billing and coding. Modeled after our fellowship mentoring group, we expect this program to continue to grow over time and look for a similar success in connecting residents with a career and position that supports their aspirations.
Career mentors – our general pediatric and subspecialty faculty mentors are committed to helping our residents get the fellowship program or job of their dreams.
