Teaching Activities

The hospitalists are the primary teaching faculty for all medical students and residents rotating on the RCHSD inpatient teaching service. All five local training institutions, including the Balboa Naval and Camp Pendleton Medical Centers send their trainees to RCHSD for pediatric training. Teaching instruction is given through both formal didactic and daily bedside sessions. Additionally, the hospitalists serve as pediatric resident advisors, fellowship directors, conference coordinators, rotation directors and participants in the pediatric residency selection process.
