The program encourages residents to develop their clinical skills and professional interests to the greatest extent possible. We provide active support for individuals entering general pediatric practice and those seeking subspecialty fellowship training. Over the past 20+ years (1997-2017), >300 residents have completed the residency program. On average, 35% have pursued fellowship training in a variety of sub-specialties. 65% have entered the practice of general pediatrics, either in an outpatient setting or as hospitalists. The majority of those graduates entering general pediatric practice remained in Texas. Chief of Residents is selected annually from the graduating class to join the department as a faculty and chief liaison to the program. Additionally, we select an Administrative PGY 3 Chief every year to give us an additional link to the real time pulse of the program. They participate in and contribute to our interview season, engage in leadership for program improvement projects, and provide an additional layer of support and advocacy for their peers. Our fellowship match rate is nearly 100% and trainees have secured positions across the country in a variety of competitive disciplines including Adolescent Medicine, Allergy and Immunology, Anesthesia, Cardiology, Child Development, Critical Care, Dermatology, Emergency Medicine, Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, General Academic Pediatrics, Hematology/Oncology, Infectious Disease, Neonatology, Neurology, Pulmonology, Rheumatology, and Sports Medicine.

The University of Texas Health San Antonio Department of Pediatrics Residency Program has been an accredited Pediatric Residency since 1955.

My favorite part of residency is how my peers inspire me each day to be a better version of myself. I am surrounded by compassionate and caring individuals who go the extra mile for their patients and their co-residents. I could not think of a better place to meet the challenges of residency.
