Life After Residency

Our residency graduates take many different paths after their time at Children's Mercy. About half of our residents go on to pursue sub-speciality fellowships, many of them right here at Children's Mercy. You can view a list of our 35-plus fellowships.

The remainder of our graduating residents enter general pediatrics, including general academic pediatrics, primary care, the growing field of urgent care, and hospitalist medicine.

Where are they now?
