With more than 100 years of experience in post-graduate medical education, Christiana Care Health System is a top-rated independent academic medical center, combining the best of community and academic hospital systems.
We support 11 allopathic and two osteopathic residencies, plus residencies in oral and maxillofacial surgery, dentistry, podiatry, pharmacy and pastoral care. Our program is large enough to provide rich educational opportunities, while small enough to ensure that each resident receives personal attention.
Our close affiliation with Jefferson Medical College and integrated residency programs with the Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children provide expanded teaching and clinical opportunities for residents. A significant number of our Medical-Dental staff of more than 1,400 hold academic appointments at Jefferson and participate with Jefferson faculty in joint conferences and research projects.
Residents at Christiana Care receive rigorous academic training combined with hands-on experience, which fully prepares them to pursue career goals wherever they choose. We are particularly proud of the outstanding performance our graduates achieve on national board examinations.
