Why Choose Our Program
A Resident-First Program
We’re proof that you can have a welcoming, supportive environment and a rigorous residency program. Here, residents from all over the world are met with pediatric cases covering 33 counties and a population of over 2.5 million—supported by a diverse faculty that helps you grow every step of the way.
Together, we’ll help you build the autonomy, confidence, and experience to make a real-world impact that improves the lives of patients in South Texas and beyond.
The Strength of Diversity
There’s never one single way to approach a case. With the benefit of our diverse residents and faculty, you’ll get a range of medical and cultural perspectives that result in a rich training experience you won’t find anywhere else.
Welcome to South Texas
Sure, it can get a little hot in the summer. But factor in our mild winters and living less than 20 miles from the beach, fishing and outdoor fun—and you’ll see why so many love calling Corpus Christi home. Our community here welcomes new neighbors and is a place for all. Young professionals. Growing families. Visitors from all over the world. You belong here.
A Curriculum Designed for Success
Patients at Driscoll Children’s Hospital receive care representing over 30 different sub-specialties. You’ll benefit from the breadth of case types we cover and experience a mix of hands-on patient care and over 10 hours of protected didactic time each week.
