Director's Welcome

Mark Sawyer, MD

The goal of the UCSD Pediatric Residency Program is to train residents in the practice of general and subspecialty medicine. Our mission is to develop today's residents to become tomorrow's physicians as leaders in the field of Pediatrics as clinicians, scientists, advocates, and teachers. We approach training with emphasis on excellence in patient care, encouraging the residents to think critically, to make sound medical decisions, maintain advanced technical skills, and to work in a professional environment that promotes life-long learning.
