Welcome Letter from the Program Director

Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine Pediatric Residency Program at Staten Island University Hospital. Our program is unique in that although it is a relatively newer program, we have had many years of teaching and fostering pediatric residents and medical students rotating through our hospital.

Our goal is to be a training program that allows you to pursue your passion in pediatrics while developing outstanding clinical, academic and leadership skills. We strive to train residents to become excellent pediatricians; we base all the program’s curriculums and goals on the recommended ACGME Competencies and newly developed Pediatric Milestones.

Residency is also a time when life-long friendships are created. I truly believe the spirit of camaraderie, teamwork and tight bond between the residents forms the true foundation of our Pediatric Residency Program.

Please enjoy the online "tour" of our training program, and I look forward to the possibility of meeting you in the future!

Cynthia Chang, M.D.
Program Director, Dept of Pediatrics
