In addition to the traditional rotations offered to pediatric residents (inpatient, neonatal intensive care, pediatric intensive care, pediatric emergency medicine, and pediatric subspecialties) the Virginia Tech Carilion Pediatric Residency will include two months of child and adolescent psychiatry in our program.
The Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute boasts world class researchers in the areas of Neuroscience and early childhood development, with research mentors for residents who are interested. Our community partnerships with the Smart Beginnings Coalition, CHIP of Roanoke Valley (home visiting), and Total Action Against Poverty lend opportunities for residents to learn about the services that promote positive social/emotional development and school readiness for children.
Moreover, program leadership anticipates that each pediatric resident will define an individual learning plan, with goal of directing their training toward individual interests. Residents can focus on any topic, including Medical Home for Children with chronic health conditions; community/public health; pediatric global health; child advocacy; or any subspecialty or intensive care interest.
