In addition to integral involvement on general pediatric services, residents can be a part of the cardiology, pulmonology, hematology, oncology, gastroenterology, endocrinology, and nephrology inpatient services.
They may also have educational experiences in up to 50 pediatric specialty programs at Children’s Health, including those that specialize in particularly vulnerable populations such as AIDS-Related Medical Services (ARMS), Referral and Evaluation of At-Risk Children (REACH) clinic, Rees-Jones Center for Foster Care Excellence, and Thrive, a clinic for low-birth-weight children.
Residents enjoy working at Children’s HealthSM because they can play an active role caring for patients across multiple general and subspecialty services, and because patients are from a variety of racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups. Residents can utilize a vast array of ancillary and multidisciplinary services, including social work, clinical nutrition, child life, care coordination, school services, the Medical-Legal partnership (MLP), lactation consultation, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, injury prevention, and pastoral care.

William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital
William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital, a tertiary referral center for patients with complex disorders, opened in December 2014 in a newly constructed state-of-the-art facility. The building housed 460 single-patient rooms, and contains more than 35,000 square feet of space dedicated to research and learning, including the Education and Conference Center, a high-tech space for conferences, symposiums, and demonstrations. A third tower was added to CUH which opened in December 2020. This increased the total beds from 460 to 750 beds.
Teaching services include general medicine ward, ACE (Acute Care of the Elderly) team, MICU,cardiology, advanced heart failure, GI/liver team (IBD, liver transplant), and hematology/oncology. Residents also participate in subspecialty consult and outpatient clinic services during their hybrid subspecialty experience.
Residents enjoy rotating at Clements University Hospital because of the opportunity to care for patients with complex medical conditions who have exhausted the treatment options available at other facilities. Rotating here also allows residents to experience a different hospital system than that of Parkland, granting them exposure to various aspects of healthcare.
