The goal of the Boston Combined Residency Program in Pediatrics is to train subspecialty and general pediatricians in both a distinctive and integrated manner. We believe this program serves as a national model for pediatric training and comprehensive care for children. It has brought together two great hospitals and universities not for economic gain, but rather to help craft the future of pediatric care and training. We are pleased to offer this program for applicants interested in becoming leaders in pediatrics, and we look forward to working closely with our future house officers to help shape the future of clinical care, research, and education.
Senior Resident Jessica Tsai has had a busy year! In addition to all of her clinical training she has found her voice. Based on her training as MD/PhD student, she has written editorials about the challenges of the dual life as a physician-scientist and a medical trainee in the journal Science, and about mental health and wellness of bioscience trainees in Nature Biotechnology. She also has a book out on Amazon. During the Keystone Quarter she expanded her area of writing to describe a poignant case about bullying for the New York Times.

In 2017, the Urban Health and Advocacy Track was awarded the Academic Pediatric Association (APA) Teaching Program Award, one the highest honors for a pediatric training program in the United States. The UHAT track was recognized for its commitment to training national leaders in pediatrics with a focus on caring and advocating for the underserved.
Receipt of the APA Teaching Program Award recognizes years of educational development and continuous improvement of the UHAT track. The award was made possible by exceptional leadership and administrative support at Boston Medical Center and Boston Children’s Hospital. Most importantly, the award is a reflection of the tremendous spirit of collaboration that UHAT and Categorical residents bring to the BCRP and their outstanding commitment to improving child health.
