Hi!
I was wondering if anyone had any good links about obtaining a pediatric residency. Also just a general question: How does one pursue a pediatric specialty (specifically Peds Onc)>?

Thanks for the info!

Pediatric specialties are mostly done after a pediatric residency. There are some links to threads in the FAQ. Pediatric oncology is combined with hematology so it is heme/onc and is a 3 year fellowship after pediatrics. It is a match and the match is done near the end of the second year. I believe this years match (for entering in July 2011) is coming up very soon.
