The Harriet Lane Pediatric Residency Program at Johns Hopkins has a long history of preparing pediatricians for varied careers in child health. Our graduates have become successful community pediatricians, pediatric hospitalists, and subspecialists; and they have also gone on to careers in public health, global health, health policy, and health administration. It is our goal to provide residents with robust clinical experiences, exposure to a wide array of dedicated faculty, and an increasing level of independence and responsibility so that our graduates are confident in their ability to meet the challenges of whatever area of child health they hope to pursue. We are particularly proud of the leadership skills our program fosters among our senior residents, who are given a great deal of responsibility for teaching and for independence in patient management.
Harriet Lane residents provide continuity care for a diverse patient population in the Harriet Lane Clinic, Wyman Park Medical Center, and the East Baltimore Medical Center. In addition, some residents care for a largely Spanish-speaking population in the Pediatric Clinic at Bayview Medical Center. Residents manage common pediatric medical and surgical illnesses as well as complex subspecialty conditions on the general inpatient teams at The Johns Hopkins Hospital and at St. Agnes Hospital. In addition, they experience the very complex and technology-intensive world of the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. A wide variety of elective experiences is available
