About Us

Our Center for Pediatric Education provides the administrative support for all resident, fellow, medical student, and faculty education at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital.

The Pediatric Residency Program is directed by Keith Ponitz, MD, with assistance of associate directors, Ross Myers, MD, and Jessica Goldstein, MD. Jerri Rose, MD, oversees the pediatric fellowship programs, while Michael Dell, MD, and Erin Frank, MD, direct the medical student programs. Continuing medical education offerings are directed by Claudia Hoyen, MD. Together we work to develop innovative educational programs for all learners interested in child health.

Under the leadership of our program administrator, Laura Adams, the education coordinators attend to all administrative requirements of the pediatric training programs, from assuring compliance with the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and other regulatory agencies to recruitment and orientation. In addition, the coordinators assist with residents and fellows professional lives.

We are all dedicated to maintaining the tradition of educational excellence that makes UH Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital a wonderful place to launch your career.
