At the end of their residency, UAB Pediatric residents go into a variety of career choices ranging from global health, subspecialty fellowships, and general pediatrics private practice. Since 2008, 51% of our residents have entered into a career of primary care/general pediatrics and 49% have chosen to enter into subspecialty fellowships. They have pursued these careers all over the United States as well as Africa and Ireland.

 

Where Our Residents Go

 

Founder's Fund Update

The Founder’s Fund was created in 2004 to recognize the exceptional lifetime achievements of the Department of Pediatrics faculty members, Dr. Ralph E. Tiller, Dr. Paul A. Palmisano, and Dr. John W. (Bill) Benton.  Gifts raised through the Founder’s Fund campaign are used to support educational grants available through the Pediatric Residency Program.  Founder’s Fund grants have been awarded to Pediatric Residents since 2006. Below is a video detailing a project that was funded by a 2016 Founder's Fund Award.
