Caring for Our Community and Beyond

At Our Lady of the Lake Children's Health, we believe that access to not only primary care but also a robust network of specialties is critical to improving children’s health. We offer comprehensive ongoing care for children in more than 30 specialties, in addition to our critical care, intensive care and emergency departments.

We believe residents must learn to be advocates for their patients during residency in order to continue to serve as effective advocates as pediatricians. Every intern participates in a focused Community Medicine rotation that provides an understanding of the problems and challenges in mobilizing community resources aimed at delivering safe, effective, efficient and timely care for their pediatric patients.

During this rotation, interns learn about the challenges and disparities facing our local community, evaluate state policies and legislative processes as related to child health, and engage in efforts to advocate for change. All residents choose an individualized second month of Advocacy and/or Community Medicine that allows them to further explore and promote their areas of interest. Each resident completes an individualized project or advocacy hours focused on an individual, community, state or national child health issue that they feel committed to as pediatricians.
