Blank Children's Pediatric Resident Care
Blank Children's Hospital resident-run department is another wonderful option for all of your child's healthcare needs!
Blank Children's Hospital is one of two teaching hospitals in the state of Iowa that have been training pediatricians for over 75 years. Our dedication to training top-notch physicians has continued with the creation of our own resident-run department in 2020.
In the resident-run department, resident pediatricians (doctors still in training) work with experienced staff pediatricians to provide care for children from birth through age 21. Services include well-baby visits, well-child exams, immunizations, illness visits, sports physicals, and pre-op appointments. Additionally, same day appointments are available. Parents and patients are evaluated by a resident, a physical exam is performed, and together with family, a carefully tailored care plan is created.
The resident physician acts as your child's Primary Care Provider (PCP), completing all scheduled check-ups and walk-in visits, while a staff pediatrician provides close supervision and ongoing education to the team every step of the way.
The resident-run department is an excellent way to receive exceptional care for your child while actively participating in training the next generation of amazing pediatricians.
