Resident Life

Columbia University Pediatrics Residency

New York City is one of the most beautiful cities in the world—some consider it the “capital” of the world. Manhattan is a financial, cultural, industrial, and commercial center. Millions of tourists are attracted to the New York City area each year to visit the magnificent museums, art galleries, and cathedrals, and to view the skyscrapers. Many of our residents choose to do their residency in the New York metropolitan area to take advantage of the entertaining activities and the cultural diversity that the city has to offer. The cultural opportunities are limitless—the Guggenheim, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Avery Fisher Hall, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Central Park, the American Museum of Natural History, Madison Square Garden, and Lincoln Center are but a few examples. New York-Presbyterian Hospital and Columbia University offer discounts to residents and employees through Human Resources to theater, museums, and sporting and other events.
