Our first-rate pediatric physician practice will expose you to the widest range of patients and learning situations. Our community will provide a high quality of living. And you'll find a salary and benefit package that competes favorably with accredited programs in an academic medical setting.
We have wonderful faculty, staff, nurses, social workers, etc. who are all wonderful teachers and create an environment that I wanted to be a part of.
Iowa has a great residency program with an amazing NICU. After graduating from the University of Iowa Pediatric Residency Program, the opportunities to move forward in your medical career are endless. All doors are open.
I chose Iowa because of the people. Both residents and staff are fun to work with and support a positive learning environment.
I chose Iowa because their strong reputation of training leaders in pediatrics. I was impressed by the commitment to teaching and research while keeping a sincere interest in your overall growth and development as a person. It doesn't hurt that they're building a Children's Hospital that overlooks Kinnick Stadium!
I love UIHC Pediatrics. Having done medical school here, I saw first hand how friendly and helpful everybody in the Pediatric department is. Education and patient care are important to everybody, and it shows.
I chose Iowa to build my medical career. University of Iowa Children's Hospital will provide me resources to meet my career development goals: being a pediatrician of the future who can provide integrated medical care, and being an academic pediatrician trying to take advantage of cutting edge research techniques and ideas to serve patients.
I chose Iowa because it offered all of the main things I wanted for residency. The program is a great size with friendly, supportive people and plenty of opportunities to experience general pediatrics, a wide range of subspecialties, research, and medical education. Iowa City is also a nice, safe place to live with a small town feel but plenty of recreational and cultural options along with a job my husband loves too.
The people at the University of Iowa Children's Hospital really stood out as caring and genuine individuals on my interview day. The people, education, location, and new children's hospital made Iowa an easy choice for me.
I chose Iowa for the breadth of subspecialties, for the depth of clinical experiences, and for the unlimited research opportunities. Most of all, though, I chose Iowa for the people and the opportunity to work with truly exceptional clinicians and excellent staff in all aspects of care.
I chose Iowa for a new, change of pace lifestyle and because the residents and staff were incredible and friendly, they offer great benefits, housing is affordable, and also because the programs at UIHC are highly ranked and the learning experience is top notch!
I chose Iowa because of the residents! I felt most comfortable with the residents at Iowa and thought it would be the best personality fit for me. What put it over the top for me was Iowa's academic reputation and my sense of the program's commitment to resident education.
Having been a medical student here at Iowa, I already knew the Pediatric Residency program was very strong. The faculty are passionate about patient care and teaching, and I knew I would receive excellent training here.
After training here for medical school, I realized after interviewing all over the country, the attention and individualized learning I would receive here was superior to anywhere else in the nation. Iowans are the most hard-working, friendliest, and humble people - true of everyone at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.
