In the fall of 2010, the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine (VTC) enrolled its inaugural medical school class of 42 students. This unique allopathic medical school employs a problem-based curriculum with a particular emphasis on competency with medical research.
Modeled partially after some of the most prestigious and innovative schools in the country, VTC is located in Roanoke, Va., adjacent to Carilion Clinic Children's Hospital (located inside Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital). Not only does this endeavor round out Carilion Clinic's transformation to a clinic model providing superior patient care, cutting edge research and education, but it also provides the Pediatric Residency program with excellent opportunities for innovative approaches to pediatric medicine.
The Carilion Clinic-Virginia Tech Pediatric Residency program has provisional accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). We are a smaller program with six residents per year. Our inaugural class will graduate in June 2015. The focus of our program is to produce competent general pediatricians who will be ready for general practice or fellowship training. The small size of our program allows for individual attention to each resident's educational needs and professional goals.
