The goal of any pediatric hospital is to provide top-notch care for children and their families. And here at Children’s Hospital & Medical Center, we know that that type of care requires a stellar team.
A child’s care doesn’t just rely on excellent physicians and nurses — it is also dependent on a team of professionals who are all dedicated to providing the comprehensive care that every patient deserves.
That’s why Children’s is committed to providing the highest quality health professional training and education in the region.

The Education Hotline is designed for anyone who is pursuing education and training at Children’s to provide feedback on their experience. Fellows, residents, students, shadow learners, and academic interns alike are welcome to use the Education Hotline.
