Fall Quarter

Activities Fair

Come and see us at this year's activities fair and learn more about the events below! Don't forget to sign up for our email list to always get a reminder about future activities!

Rady's Rounds and Tour

An amazing annual opportunity to round with the residents of Rady's, followed by a tour at Rady's. This is one of  few chances to be able to see what it is really like to be a pediatrician in a hospital setting. Inpatient pediatrics is a field that many students do not have exposure to until landing on the wards during third year!


Winter Quarter

Resident Panel

Learn about pediatrics residency and pediatric subspecialty fellowships in an intimate setting. Beginning with a short panel with all of the residents and fellows, we then break out into smaller groups with each resident so that YOU can ask the questions that you want the answers to in a small group setting. Hear why everyone chose their specialties and see where your personalities and interests may lie.


Spring Quarter

MS4 match panel and Med-Peds Residency talk with Dr. Wan

Hear from Dr. Wan (Go Purple AC!), the Med-Peds residency director, as well as recent matchees to pediatrics residencies all over the country! Get advice about what to do and what not to do fro MS4s who have just experienced their clinical years, as well as from Dr. Wan, who evaluates residency applications to Med-Peds!
