Pediatric Residency Program Director Rosenberg Steps Down

It is with a mix of admiration and nostalgia that we announce the decision of Adam Rosenberg, MD, a distinguished figure in the realm of pediatrics, to step down from his role as Pediatric Residency Program director. Rosenberg has spearheaded this highly competitive program since 2003, leaving behind a remarkable legacy spanning 21 years characterized by outstanding leadership. Under his direction, our program has flourished, setting a benchmark for excellence, garnering national acclaim and nurturing hundreds of residents who are now contributing significantly to pediatrics on a global scale.

Throughout his career, Rosenberg has not only been a trailblazer in pediatric medicine but also a mentor, advocate and visionary. His commitment to educational innovation and scholarly pursuits has elevated the standard of pediatric training and enriched the field's knowledge base. His legacy will serve as a beacon inspiring future generations of pediatricians to pursue excellence and compassion in their professional endeavors.

Rosenberg embarked on his academic journey with medical training at Vanderbilt University, followed by an internship and residency at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center and a fellowship at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Perinatal Medicine. He commenced his academic tenure at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 1981 as an instructor. In 1984, he returned to Colorado joining the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine as an assistant professor, and advanced through the academic ranks ultimately achieving full professor in 1997.

Since 2012, Rosenberg had also been a respected member of the Program Director’s Committee of the American Board of Pediatrics, alongside various committee roles for the Association of Pediatric Program Directors, the Council of Pediatric Subspecialties and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education focusing on the training of pediatric residents.

Rosenberg's service record encompasses diverse roles and contributions to numerous boards and foundations, underscoring his dedication to advancing medical knowledge and patient care. His extensive body of work, including abstracts, articles, books, reviews and presentations has made a substantial impact on pediatric education. Notably, his proposal on "Structured Extended Career Centered Block Time in a Pediatric Residency Program” influenced residency guidelines established by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), mandating block career focused time in all pediatric residency programs. He also served as a member of the writing committee that developed the ACGME training requirements for pediatrics that will go into effect in July 2025.

We express our deepest appreciation for Dr. Rosenberg's unwavering dedication and invaluable contributions to the Department of Pediatrics and the University of Colorado School of Medicine. As we eagerly anticipate the appointment of his successor, we also look forward to Rosenberg's ongoing presence as a revered member of our faculty.
