Pediatric Residency Program - Welcome

Our Pediatric Residency Program at Saint Louis University School of Medicine offers 16 Categorical Pediatrics positions each year and 2 Pediatrics-Child Neurology positions.

We are very proud of our long-standing history of training excellent Pediatricians. Our Pediatric Residency Program began in 1933, when residents began receiving clinical training at St. Mary's Hospital. In 1956, SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital (Cardinal Glennon) was opened and became the primary site of the University's Pediatric Residency. Since that time, Cardinal Glennon has continuously offered exceptional clinical and educational experience to housestaff and medical students as a fully accredited program credentialed by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
