Our Pediatric Residency Program is a community-based, academic medical center program nestled in the Appalachian Mountains, and serves a diverse population including many rural communities across southern West Virginia.  Many of our patients face significant health and socio-economic challenges, and we teach our residents the skills necessary for optimal impact on patients and families.  In addition to the focus on primary care and preparing residents for practice or fellowships, our program emphasizes cultivating your individual interests by providing training in advocacy, clinical research, and quality improvement.  Over the decades, our program has contributed greatly to the pediatric workforce locally and across the country.

Charleston Area Medical Center is one of the largest health systems in West Virginia and serves the entire southern area of the state with the following mission, "Striving to provide the best health care to every patient, every day."  Our pediatric residents value their training in the first free-standing children's hospital in the state under the supervision of a dedicated group of pediatric sub-specialists and generalists who provide comprehensive care to our patients.
