The fully accredited residency program is jointly directed by the Robert C. Byrd Health Sciences Center of West Virginia University/Charleston Division and Charleston Area Medical Center. CAMC is a 850-bed facility comprised of four hospitals – Women and Children’s Hospital, General Hospital, Memorial Hospital and Teays Valley Hospital. Being more centrally located, CAMC has the largest draw area compared to any other hospital in the state. We receive patients from both urban and rural areas offering the pediatrics team a diversity hard to find elsewhere. CAMC is the state’s high tech tertiary care medical center, and those capabilities will be at your disposal as a resident.

Our primary emphasis is on training physicians in the field of General Pediatrics, but this does not compromise the chances of our graduates to pursue further training in various pediatric subspecialties, and every year a few of our residents join various fellowship programs at the institutions of their choice. We firmly believe that to be a good subspecialist, one has to be a very good generalist. Our strong academic program provides that solid foundation. In addition to a core group of general pediatricians, a large variety of pediatric subspecialists on our faculty are actively involved in residents’ education and training

Women and Children’s Hospital opened in 1987 as the state’s only free standing hospital specializing in the care of women and children. It is the largest pediatric/obstetric facility in the state with the highest birth rate. Our residents train in the 36-bed pediatric/adolescent unit, six bed Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (with four additional transitional care beds), and a 26-bed level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit with a 24/7 neonatologist in-house. Pediatric residents also work closely with the pediatric surgeons and co-manage patients requiring various surgical sub-specialty interventions.

A dedicated busy pediatric emergency room and a well-organized Children’s Medicine Center provide a multifaceted exposure and training in outpatient settings.

Our library subscribes to a number of online journals, medical information technologies and textbooks that are available online in all patient care areas and call rooms/resident lounges.

We are in full compliance with the newly implemented residents duty hours. A strong system of support services including phlebotomy, IV access, social services, respiratory therapy, nutrition services, and transport team are in place, minimizing residents’ time spent on these routine activities. Residents take call on every fourth night during the inpatient rotations, and 2-3 calls per month during elective/outpatient rotations. Some elective months are call free.

Applications are accepted only through the AAMC Electronic Residency Application Service ( ERAS).
