CHOC Residency Program Accepts Largest Incoming Class

In July, CHOC welcomes 19 brand-new residents—the largest class ever. Jim Korb, M.D., Director of CHOC Academic Affairs, attributes the program’s growth to the dramatic increase in patient volume at CHOC over the last five years.

“The CHOC Residency Program is quite rigorous and exposes residents to just about every pediatric condition imaginable,” Dr. Korb says. “Upon graduation, about two-thirds of our residents go into general pediatric practice and about one-third pursue subspecialty training.”

The following residents will be entering fellowships this July: Mia Karamatsu (Emergency Medicine, Loma Linda); Anup Katheria (Neonatology, Children’s Hospital San Diego); and Christina Southern (Endocrinology, CHLA). Dr. Genevieve Buser and Dr. Ronen Zipkin will be staying on as Chief Residents at CHOC. Dr. Susan Lin and Dr. Regina Lee will be joining general pediatric practices outside of the Orange County area.

CONGRATULATIONS TO GRADUATING CHOC RESIDENTS
The following residents are planning to stay in the Orange County area to practice general pediatrics. If you would like to contact any of the following pediatricians, please call CHOC Academic Affairs at 714-532-8338.
