Dr. Violet Borowicz grew up in Silver Spring, Maryland and is the oldest of four. She graduated medical school at Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 2008. She subsequently completed her pediatric residency at Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware in 2011 and her pediatric hematology oncology fellowship at Children's National Health System in Washington, DC in 2014. <br/><br/>

Dr. Borowicz joined Carilion Children's in 2014 and provides pediatric hematology oncology and pediatric palliative medicine care to children in the Roanoke Valley. Caring for children with a variety of hematologic and oncologic processes is a very rewarding and humbling experiencing and she is grateful for the ability to provide this care to patients and families. Palliative medicine became a passion of hers throughout her training and she aims to provide quality of life care and symptom management to any child living with a chronic life-threatening illness. She is an assistant professor at VTC School of Medicine and Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine. Dr. Borowicz became the Medical Director for Care Connection for Children in 2017. She is now also Associate Program Director for the VTC Pediatric Residency Program since late 2019. She enjoys working with students and residents and has a passion for helping learners with wellness and resilience in medicine. <br/><br/>

Outside of work, she loves spending time with her family and friends, is a huge hockey fan (go Caps!) and enjoys traveling, concerts and theater.
Being able to form close relationships through open communication and team work with a patient and their family is integral to effective family-centered care.
