Pediatric Residency Training Program


​​​The UW Neighborhood Kent/Des Moines Clinic​ is a new site for the UW Pediatric Residency Training program from Seattle Children’s; creating a community based training site for pediatric resident physicians.

​​​Resident physicians provide care for everything from ear infections to well child visits, for children of all ages, from newborns to young adults. The UW Neighborhood Kent/Des Moines Clinic is dedicated to providing patient-centered care and is the perfect setting for the residents to see a high volume of patients and learn about primary care pediatrics.

​The program opened in July 2012 with 14 resident physicians and has grown to include a total of 16 residents in 2013. Residents are supervised and taught by the clinic’s four pediatricians, Dr. Sheryl Morelli, Dr. Kari Gillenwater, Dr. Matthew Blessing and Dr. Doreen Kiss.

This program structure provides patients and their families with experienced, thoughtful pediatric care.
