Children’s Hospital & Research Center Oakland — better known as Children’s Oakland — said late Wednesday that its pediatric residency program has been awarded $3.84 million by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as part of national health reform. The grant, said to be the largest in California under the federal health reform act’s Primary Care Residency Expansion program, will be used to train up to 20 new pediatric residents – doctors in training – over a five-year period beginning in 2011, the Oakland hospital said.
