Chair's Welcome Letter

Valerie P. Opipari, M.D.

We are excited that you are interested in learning more about our program.

Pediatric training at Michigan offers the acuity, volume, and complexity of a large referral center within a supportive, individualized educational environment. This balance creates a training experience that ensures our residents are prepared to become leaders in pediatric medicine. Our faculty are eager to teach and mentor, and we have exceptional clinical services and robust research programs. Every sub-specialty within pediatrics is represented in C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, and our faculty are committed to helping each resident discover and successfully prepare for their long-term career goals.

If you have any questions about our program, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are proud of the training we provide and would love to learn more about you and your interests!
