Sanford School of Medicine Residencies



From the Program Director

Welcome to Dr. Joseph Zenelthe Pediatrics Residency Program at Sanford Children's Hospital!

We are the only pediatrics residency in the Dakotas, and for this 2013-14 academic year, we now have a full complement of first-, second-and third-year residents. Just like pediatricians enjoy seeing their patients grow and develop over the years, our faculty is proud of the progress our residents and our program have achieved. 

The size of our program, six residents per year, allows the faculty to encourage all residents to develop their individual skills as pediatricians. The distinctive health care characteristics of Sanford Health and the Dakota region give our residents plenty of opportunities to pursue pediatrics in rural, urban and global health settings; to engage in clinical research; and to develop administrative and advocacy expertise.

We hope that you enjoy exploring our site, where you will find additional information about our curriculum, benefits and living in Sioux Falls. If you are interested in the practice of pediatrics and are game for making a mark in a new residency program and living in a great place, don't hesitate to apply!
