We are excited to present the Hasbro Pediatric Alumni Association! The purpose of our new group is to allow graduates of the Brown University/Hasbro pediatric residency and fellowship programs stay in touch with their programs as well as with each other. As we grow, we hope to provide you quarterly news updates about what is going on at Hasbro, opportunities to connect with current residents and fellows and ways that you can contribute to improve wellness of current trainees. Each year, the current pediatric chief residents will be the point of contact of the association. We look forward to hearing from all of you and staying connected!

Since 1953, Rhode Island Hospital has been training residents to be advocates and leaders in the field of pediatrics. Now the second largest residency specialty affiliated with Brown University, the program has individuals interested in many different subspecialties and alumni can be found all around the country. Here is a list of our most recent alumni who have graduated from the Brown University/Hasbro Children’s Hospital Pediatric Residency Program.
