Boston Combined Residency Program

The Boston Combined Residency Program brings together the training programs of Boston Medical Center and Boston Children's Hospital.

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.
