Pediatrics Oakland - Alumni & Careers

Our 2020 Graduates, we celebrated virtually this year but were able to include family and friends from across the country and our faculty delivered beautiful dinner platters from a local Thai restaurant and flowers to each graduate’s home for the special evening.

Our graduates are well-prepared for a diverse array of practice and advanced training venues. While it varies from year to year, about half of our graduating residents pursue careers in general pediatrics (inpatient and outpatient), and about half continue on to advanced training via fellowship. Many hold leadership and teaching positions in a breadth of organizations on a local, regional, and national level.
