Department of Pediatrics

Family Day

Our annual Family Day celebration provides an eagerly anticipated opportunity for our residents’ families to come and experience what resident life is all about. They meet the Program Administration and receive tours of Egleston, Hughes Spalding, and Grady.

Summer Picnic

Each June we say goodbye to our graduating seniors and hello to our new interns at the summer picnic in Piedmont Park. This event provides a great chance for the incoming PL-1s to meet their soon-to-be colleagues in a relaxed and inviting setting.


Meconium Cup

The annual Meconium Cup pits the Pediatrics residents against our colleagues in OB/GYN in a friendly game of softball. Friends and family are welcome and a good time is had by all.

Other Events

In addition to the events listed here, residents organize and participate in a number of other social activities throughout the year. Whether you want to take in a Braves game, run a half-marathon, hike, or learn to paint, there is always something going on!
